UKULELES! Made three so far... Currently improving one of my earlier attempts to have a better shaped neck and sound better.

Havent built one yett. But now that im learning to fret its not far off. I bought a Uke about 10 years ago. Think it was part of a costume. Maybe it was a gift.I dont know.Learned a couple chords and put it down. Then I met Shelly Rickey. Ill never see the Uke the same again.
Well I picked mine up again. Im not real fluent on it yett. But she made me realize the magic in those instruments. Im so glad I met her. She's the Queen of the Uke! If you dont know her.Check out her page.

Just finishing up the Baritone CBU my son and I have been working on:

I'm pleased with the sound so far, and he is really stoked. Still need to fiddle a bit with the action, likely replacing the nut.

Hi gang, haven't built a Uke yet but I'm all excited to get one in the works. This looks like a good spot to follow and learn something.

Gonna build a couple but not sure about neck design. What's an easy but effective way of attaching the neck. Thinking I don't want to use the cbg neck-thru method.
