Mahogany [sort of] resawn

I cut the biggest piece from last post into three neck profiles, and a chunk for sounboard and back. With a 0.8 mm blade in my miniature table saw, I cut as deep as I could from all edges. The cut got a bit wider than the nominal kerf on the blade, since I made several passes, gradually raising the blade.

That leaves me with 40 mm at the widest part to cut with the (also miniature) bandsaw, or with a japanese hand saw. The piece that will become sides has 10 mm left in the middle, and I saw that it already went through the process once, giving me sides to another ukulele.
