Thanks for the comments. I would think many techniques in building the tenor guitar would be similar in building a uke. I’ve shot the next video – editing it this week. In it I cut the back and sides to rough dimensions – from a 3/4” rough sawn piece of walnut to some nice looking 0.080” thick back & sides.
