Last year, Stanford opened a glorious new concert hall. Somewhere during its construction, Steven Sano, a professor in the Music Department, found some extra scraps of Alaskan yellow cedar, the wood used to build the stage floor. He took the wood known “for its resonance and fine grain” to a luthier and came home with two blond-top tenor ukes. They’re on display above. Stanford News has more on the story.
