Workshop video of shaping a neck

Got a new way of doing something? Or maybe an old method that needs some clarification.

Workshop video of shaping a neck

Probably the most difficult thing for beginers to get their head around is how to go about making a neck that looks and feels right. I don't know if this video will help with that, but at least you see how I go about it.

The total time from start to ready for pore filling was just under 1/2 hour, and that was with me stopping and starting to frame the camera shots and several takes.

Yeah, but ukeleles are so small - of course you can do it fast!

But I do love seeing you do it with hand tools, and by eye and feel. Just crafting it until it seems right. And I bet it was right.
