Time to start on the neck.

Lucky I had plenty of ones and zeroes left over.

Looks good.

Hmmm ones and zeros could be money or could be binary code. He does like his computer things.:D

Maybe this ukulele is being built by one of those 3D printers.

Bingo!

I've had this idea for a Uke design in my head for months. I wanted to see what it'd actually look like if I had it built (if I could find someone to actually build it). I can't draw for s**t, so I thought I'd model it, that way I can arse around with materials, tuners, bridge, inlays, binding etc, without spending a silly amount of money.

I also wanted to see what a Uke would look like with a cutaway and an upper bout in a similar style to the old Aria PE range of guitars, where there's a smooth curve all the way through, and a particular design of headstock that I have in mind.

Sorry if I confused anyone, I figured you'd suss it straight away with my previous form :)

Where were you two months ago when I was trying to visualise my own custom uke! My wife asked if there was any sort of programme I could use to mock one up like wemdid with the IKEA kitchen modeller.

Doh!

I wouldn't charge a lot to do the same for other people though... ;)
