    Sure, a knife would be doable. Really hard to resaw though. Watch the Mexican luthier say, "You call that a knife?"

    I need to rebuild my bandsaw, no bearings and everything not essential is closed. Need to do work on my drum sander but I'll probably leave it till I build another one. Jointer needs work, table saw,...

    The left one for the back, you spend more time looking at the front, would be a shame not to have it shown to people when played.

    Just squeeze a little glue in from the bottom and they will be fine. On the length, don't worry too much, the uke will not know it. As long as you get the bridge in the right place.
