There is a feature in the current Salisbury Journal about my ukulele Building exploits. The lovely Anne Morris and Tom Gregory came and spent some time in the workshop. I talked them through my process of building ukuleles and showed them around the workshop.

I've selected a lovely piece of American Cherry for the neck. The plans show the scale of the neck. This will be a 14" scale, slightly larger than my normal sopranos.
I've changed my mind on the top, abandoning the Cedar for a piece of English Cherry. It will be rather more hard-wearing and will be a better match for the Cherry neck!
