Lookin' good. The flamed walnut is really nice. Is that that the instrument playing in the backgroud? If so, you may want to dig in a little more to get the baby going.

i had never played a uke b4 i made this my intonation seems a little off. is there a way to adjust it. the scale lenth is measured from the nut to the 12th fret right. I made quite a few mistakes but learned alot. Can u believe i bought that peice of walnut at rockler for $5
