    This ukulele is absolutely Beau-tiful!

    It appears from one of the photos in comment #24 that the nut slots for the C and E string are not straight but instead curve slightly toward the strings' respective tuning pegs. Beau, am I correct, or is that just my eyes deceiving me based on the way the nut was photographed?

    On a not-so-humble-brag note, I'm glad I suggested to Len that it would be cool if the inlay incorporated the dark grain strand that runs through the headplate. (I thought it would add dimension to the headplate wood.) Beau, you did a great job turning that grain strand into a stem around which the vine in the inlay winds.

    Yes, I "trumpet" out my nut slots like in this pic, (which is from this website link below)- this is to minimise string friction in the nut slot.

    I have recorded a Youtube video on this but haven't released it yet.
