Ukulele Build Part 2

This build might move along a little slower than most others because this one is going up live as the build goes on as opposed to most of the others which are retrospective.  Tonight the sound hole and route for the rosette were cut.  A Stewart Mac router base was used along with a 1/4 inch cutter to make the rosette route.  A hole was drilled through the router base and the router and bit were nailed through the uke front with the nail forming a pivot for the router assembly.  The same was done to cut out the sound hole.  Masking tape was used to cover the router base to protect the top from any scratches.  Both routes were perfectly round.
