Looking to make a Uke for my second build

Greetings all, I built a 3 string cbg awhile ago but never actually learned to play it.During these last months (years?) of plague I ended up following my brother, father, aunt, and niece into learning the Ukulele.   I am now thinking about building my own and not sure if I need a wider neck/fretboard for 4 strings or if I could still use a yardstick as a fretboard for a uke.See More
