Introduction: Flying V Ukelele From Scrap Wood

Picture of Flying V Ukelele From Scrap Wood

this was my #boycottblackfriday video of the year where i try to show an alternative to buying from the import chain stores. i made my 5 year old son a ukelele from scrap plywood and wood for christmas. he loves it and it works as good as any other inexpensive uke on the market. it is not as hard as it looks!! it just takes time and patience. i explain how to do it in the video.

i apologize that this isn't a traditional "instructable-style" write-up; i make these videos for my youtube channel and try to share them here as well, for anyone who may be interested. this is a build for someone who would consider themselves "proficient" or higher with woodworking. feel free to ask questions and i will do my best to answer.

be good,

I'd love to watch your video, but there doesn't seem to be a link to it.
