Sorry my pics look almost exactly the same. It's just that everything is at the same place and is seen on all photos. In this one however, you can with effort see the back, the fretboard and the finished linings. I was about to box up when I remembered the label. I'll have Johan make me one tomorrow.

Well the sides are glued, the top lined with kerfing and the sides roughly shaped to recieve the domed (not doomed I hope) back. Tomorrow it's time to trim the soundboard, glue kerfing for the back, and then try my little tool I made for cutting binding ledges. It's so crude I don't dare show it before I try it.

If I, from now on, rise at 3 in the morning, spend one hour on my yoga practice, then two hours building ukuleles - I'll still have time to make breakfast to the kids before going to the office... Anyway, here's the heel carved and some bracing glued. A massive sculpture my wife made provides clamping pressure.
edit: If you see a comment below from shakala or whatever, don't click on the hyperlink. It's something bad that I can't get rid of easily.
Before going to work (as in day job) I started to shape bars and braces. One of the finger planes I made works better than the other. Little Johan says it's his.
