I LOVE building and playing ukuleles. I've build about six so far in all scales and even a couple of steel sting tenors. I mostly finger pick but I really love how accessible some of the really interesting jazz chord are on a uke. Stuff I would never attempt on guitar.

Yep, I built a pair of 2 stringers for my grandchildren with hockey stick necks, turned out pretty neat. I need to post some pictures.

Hey all, been meaning to build a uke for ages now, but scored one from a charity shop for £4.99! It looks as good as new, but not sure if it's a good one or not, as I don't know much about them! The label inside says OZARK model uk.50. Has anyone heard of this make? I can't seem to find any info on Ozark ukes online. I actually thought it had been strung up wrong as I didn't know ukes had a skinny string up top!! It seems to tune up ok, but the tuners wind back a bit too easily and the tension screws in the pegs are a bit rounded out. May have to replace those. It will make a good pattern for a cigar box uke if nothing else :)
