For me, carving the necks to shape is the most pleasant part of making a uke. If the neck ain't right, the uke ain't right. Shaping those necks continues to be a challenge. I love the look of the "hook" at the base, I am fascinated by developing the shape with the best "feel". I think I am getting close to what I think that feel should be so each new neck is a challenge. Here is a series of today's work on a neck. Enjoy!
