Is attaching the necks to the Soundboard A simple but exacting job.,
first you must cut out the place where the neck will fit right up to the drawn edge of the Soundboard. I do this with a fine blade in the jewelers saw.
then you must take great care to get the neck and the body lined up perfectly straight. No one wants a crooked ukulele. When that is done, a little glue and a clamp and they are joined. then you start thinking about glueing on the sides. I was all out of Tentalones, so that became the next project.
Basswood is cut and sized to go through my rubber band powered tentalone cutter. This home made device cuts the required slots perfectly.
The spacing is done by the boxwood bolt which slides onto the workpiece powered by two rubber bands. You can see its point inserted into the second cut.
then with a sharp knife, the wood is shaped, sanded and now it is ready to be used.
