Ukulele Build Part 4

Plastic bindings were added to the sides of the finger boards.  Each fingerboard needed to be reduced in width to allow the plastic bindings to fit the neck width.  I tired tight bond as a glue but this didn't work well so I switched to thin CA glue and this worked very well.  The plastic was pre-bent to fit the profiles of the fingerboard edge and the CA bonded instantly and firmly.  Scrapers and sandpaper were used to make the binding flush with the fingerboard profile.
