Make your own ukulele
« on: April 13, 2014, 02:47:56 PM »
Our son's FIL is both a talented musician and a skilled woodworker. When he visited us in California last year, he picked up one of my ukes and, although he'd never played one before, he started doodling on one of my instruments. I suspected that he'd soon buy himself a uke and teach himself to play, which he did.

More recently, he decided to use his woodworking & model building skills to make his own ukulele. The photos, which are posted with permission, speak for themselves.

Sure thing; I hope it inspires your Dad to make his own ukulele. FYI if you give him the link to this topic, he can view it without joining the forum.

Awesome Tom. Back in the 60s I took up playing violin and viola. After playing awhile I decided I wanted to build my own violin so I went to the library and checked out a book on making a violin. By the time I finished reading the book I realized it would never happen in my lifetime. I am a horrible carpenter and I had no wood working tools. I am always amazed at people who can work with wood.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I sent him the link, I think anyway, I am not a computer nerd. I carve bears for a living.
