Number three of this design. Refined the body shape, still need to slim the shoulders down a little more. Otherwise quite happy with it.
Tasmanian Blackwood and Purple Heart. Concert scale.

Very nice timbers. I like how the sound hole mimics the body shape. :cheers:

Very nice looking. The shape reminds me of a style by a local Minnesota company called Bonanza Ukes, one that they call the "Flatlander". Like yours it can stand on end.

Yes, my first two teardrops were rounded on the bottom. I altered the design to allow it to stand on it's own.

Thanks Jim, I thought the soundhole suited the Uke rather than the stock standard shape.
