Quilted Pommele Sapele Tenor Ukulele
This is a gorgeous ukulele I finished in June 2021.
But, as pretty as it looked, I didn't quite like the sound, so a month later I replaced the top.
I used a router with a wide bit and small bearing to remove the binding and part of the top.
Then a hot spatula loosened the glue and pried off the top.
The top came off quite nicely.
Old top meets new top.

Put glue on the existing linings then attached the new top. Using pressure to get a good fit.
