Introduction: One String Playable Canjo
I like those one string guitars or can ukuleles, so I decided to make two for my kids.
- a piece of wood (around 50cm long, not to large or thick)
- a drill
- nuts and bolts
- ukulele peg and string
- a can (better chose a nice one....)
Step 1: Set the Can in Place
drill holes in the wooden part (one hole between each third of the can's length)
then mark the can to drill it at the same points.
nuts, bolts, and it is assembled....
Step 2: Peg
drill a hole the diameter of the peg you got on ebay for 1 dollar....and screw it at the end of the neck....
Step 3: The String...
drill a small hole in the bottom of the can, your string will pass trough it.
I chose to use the classic surgeon knot to tie the string around a nut and passed it through a dowel to avoid damage in the bottom of the can...works well.
tie the other end of the string to the peg, set it to the desired tune, and strum!!!!!!!!!!
Step 4: Happy Strumming!!!
very solid, cheap, very funny, thanks to the firsts instructables that gave me that idea!!!
We have a be nice policy.
