Very nice, Gerard. I like how you joined the back halves with the grain runnning at an angle. Also, does the neck retain the triangular shape shown at headstock?

Hello Bob !
No, just close up pic view impression ...
Neck is quarter moon shape all along, and a little more half moon section juste in front heel neck.
Sorry for my poor american language.
Hope you understand...
Thank's for comment and interest.

Very nice looking ukulele, Gerard. Thanks for sharing! I just noticed your blog, and intend to take a good look, because I want to see more of your work.

Looks great! Your work is very tidy and precise. I enjoy all the photographs and details on your blog. Sometimes I read it in French (which I only partly understand) and sometimes with Google translate (fish plates!). Either way is fun.
