Building a ukulele
My friend Pat Hawley encouraged me to try to build a ukulele.
Having an experienced guitar builder such as Pat to turn to for advice
gave me the courage to build one. But once I got started, I experimented
with how I could build it without the specialized equipment that many guitar builders
use. I will also be covering Pat Hawley's more professional build of a ukulele
alongside my experiments. I also have Free ukulele plans available
And here's the finished instruments.
