Thanks for the considered comments, Sam.

A couple of weeks ago, Sam sent me some Engelmann violin wedges he cut in his native region of Oregon. It will be a while till I can use it because it is not yet acclimated to my shop, but I did mess with it enough to be able to say it is really beautifully even grained and stiff enough to have every chance of being truly great material. He claims to have no commercial intentions but if this is any indicator of his skill and resources, we should hope he will change his mind.

In other news; I have put the first coat of varnish onto the all "Tree" Uke and it does not disappoint:
