Playing the ukulele is a joy in itself; playing one you made by hand is even more rewarding. This book takes you step-by-step through the process of constructing two styles of ukulele. For beginners, the box-shaped ukulele can be made using basic hand tools. For more advanced woodworkers, the professional-grade ukulele with the classic figure-eight shape involves wood bending and traditional rope binding.
The book includes plans, instructions and step-by-step photographs detailing the construction process, along with advice on wood selection, design, and acoustics, as well as setting up, tuning and playing your new instrument.
