Carving of the neck.
This is my favourite bit... Take one piece of wood, and one massive aggressive wood rasp... Et voila.. One neck shaped in less than three minutes.. This tool is such a great piece of kit, with one swipe you can take off about 1/4" of unwanted wood, it beats spokeshaves everyday of the week for me, these uke necks are tiny, you can't get a spokeshave in either end, so they aren't effective imho.. From the 'massive aggressive' rasp I'll step down a notch and use an engineers file to carry on the process.
