Working in circles

Nothing new about the circle design, but I wanted to try it out.
These will be tenor ukes with necks joining the body at the 17th fret. I'm using a "Spanish" joint, i.e. the sides fit into notches cut into the base of the neck: ideally, those notches would be cut with a table saw, but since I don't have one, I cut them with a hand saw, and it's a bit difficult to saw on a slant and get the proper width and depth so that the sides will fit in snugly without skewing the symmetry.
