    That’s pretty darn cool, Dave. I have wondered how they did the beveled arm rest. Now I know. Thanks for keeping us up to date on the progress. Now I just have to clean the drool off the keyboard.

    That is going to be an astonishing looking and sounding instrument Dave.

    Your headstock design is very classy and I love what Luis did with the angled wood grain.

    The arm rest looks fantastic with the way the grain wraps it. Really pretty.

    Can't wait to see the finished piece. It's going to be absolutely stunning.

    Oh my gosh!!! It is turning out wonderfully, can’t wait to hear it. The arm bevel turned out beautiful and the binding with red purfling on the fretboard is fabulous.

    @ Osprey...Hey Cliff the arm rest building process is very involved and I find it interesting as well. It looks like it just grows out of the body

    @ Ken2018... Thank you for the nice compliments, you have a great eye for detail. Luis puts a lot of thought into the design and details. There are somethings he refuses to do because they either don't look right or effect the sound. But he is flexible and likes a challenge

    @ Spicy Steve...Thanks Steve it is turning out even better than initially conceived. As things evolve changes or little touches are made.

    @ Hollis....I sure wish you lived closer. You could play this and any one of my other ukes

    Lookin' good, DownUpDave!

    The neck is carved to final shape. It has been fitted and everything is as it should be. A complete final sanding, removal of the neck, it is a bolt on, then the finishing process starts. This will be the final post in this thread.

    Thanks to everyone that followed along and commented. It is always fun sharing in the building process as we all learn something. Plus we all love pictures and Luis is very generous with them. When it is in my hands I will do a NUD to show the finished product and a bit of a suprise.

    No. Luis has not started applying the multiple coats of lacquer yet. Probably at least three weeks before I can touch it.
