Hello all from South Australia. I started building ukuleles a couple of years ago to help inspire my children. This is my fourth ukulele.
It’s a baritone and the body is Blackwood, a multi laminate neck with some more Australian timbers. I have built this for myself and three of my children have one of their own now too.
I’m looking forward to learning more about building and to get started on the next one. I mill most of my own timber from wind fallen trees.

Welcome! I really like the neck lamination scheme; those lines look great together.

Thank you all for your comments. Here are a few pictures of the ones I built for my daughters.
The bodies are Camphor Laurel, all of them have radiused fretboards.

Both of these are baritone.

This one is a tenor for my 7 year old so I made the body slimmer than a normal tenor.
