Making the Uke Neck

The mahogany slab is nice and thick, so I can get the headstock angle without adding any additional material (i.e. no need for a scarf joint). But the heel needed to be a little thicker, so an extra block gets glued on that end.

Marked up with a template, then rough cut on the band saw.

Top and side profiles.

And a #4 plane to surface the headstock.
