I like those one string guitars or can ukuleles, so I decided to make two for my kids.

only need:
- 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....


Great Instructable! If anyone is looking for a cheap alternative for a guitar string, use DENTAL FLOSS! Just wind a few lengths of cord together and your done! I've already made a few guitar strings and it works great on my canjo!
<p>This is an awesome idea, I am going to try this right now, thanks for the great idea! Cheers!</p>
I love this. I'm making a 4 string tenor canjo for myself right now but i wanted to make some extra single stringers for my preschooler and her friends.
<p>how did you hold the screw while you tighten the wingnut</p>
Alternatively, you could use an angled screwdriver.
Well... With my finger..... When it's tight enough, it holds itself and I could block it.....
