Here are some pictures of my concert body pineapple with a tenor neck. I built this in DS Gillís shop (David is my uncle). Unk advised me along the way. It is walnut with a maple finger board. The finger board is 1.5" wide at the nut. It is strung as low G. I built it with a zero fret just for grins.

Great stuff nice uke....Nice workshop...love the Milling machine :drool:and other gear....Good for you using the Dovetail joint method (Not for the timid):)..and it looks as if you're almost set up for batch production...Tell your uncle Dave you want your own printed labels as well.

Thanks for the kind words. The mill is part of my home shop where I mostly do metal work. I was a custom cabinetmaker for many years and trade wood shavings for steel and aluminum. BTW, the label does have my name and location on it.
