New Cigar Box ukulele off the production line

It's been slow going in the workshop lately but having a new baby is a good excuse. Here is homemade ukulele number three nearly all done except a final polish. This is back to the trusted cigar box body - this time a double tray but smaller face which in theory helps with the low tones. The neck is the same piece of recycled Kauri with the purple heart fretboard. So far sounds good - not as mellow as number 1 but even more twangy - it might settle down after a few plays.
