Here are some pics from a new build I’m working on. It’s a baritone shape that I modeled up in g-thang to mimic an L1.

This is going to be cool I'm a big fan of the L1 body shape. Maybe it's been done, but I haven't seen that shape used for an ukulele yet.

Love the shape. Not just early L-1, but many of their guitars are this shape.

I also use drafting triangles when laying out back braces. Perfect tool for the job.
