Got the fretboards finished and installed today, not a small task. Carla and Dianne will be happy
Two views of the boards clamped to the necks. You can't have too many clamps.
A couple of hours later, the glue has set, the necks are on, fret ends filed. Now its time to finish the shaping of t.he necks.
With the uke clamped in the vise I am ready to carve the neck
It begins with a rough rasp, then a finer one, then the scraper, bow sander and sand paper. A crucial part of the build is making a slim graceful and very playable neck. shaping will continue tomorrow.
