Im making a new bone nut for a mid-60s laminate baritone ukulele I refurbished - New bridge and saddle, refinished. The string spacing at the nut is 3/8 between strings. Since the D and G strings are wound, should I cut the slots for the wound strings with 7/16 spacing?

Not sure if this is an issues on ukuleles, even with 2 wound strings.

To do that your nut will have to be 1 3/4" wide..I'd just measure 1/8" from the nut end for the D & E strings and space them equally, as your fingertips rest on the centre line of the strings not the spaces.
