CNC router

Doesen't time fly I have been kept busy with the construction of a CNC router. A colleague of mine at the shed and I have had our hands full with this construction plus other project. 

In between I have started and inspired to build a tenor ukulele. In past post someone wanted to know about the building of a ukulele, which I am happy to provide what information I have.

I have cut templates for the body the neck  and the profile for the bending jig. The information is in dxf format and can be exported to PDF as a 1:1 scale to cut templates with. I use Fusion 360 to model the ukulele which is free from AutoCad 

Photos to follow shortly of the ukulele construction.
