Cool project. You had me fooled though! I thought these were made of real bacon.Also, on a sort of unrelated note, have you seen Theodore Gray's bacon thermal lance project? I'm just sharing 'cause I think it's a cool Idea, and it's what first popped into my head when I saw your project.
This is so cool! Congrats on getting first place!
Nice build! very clever.
This is so cool! I really liked how the panels came out.
Woops! sorry, I meant 13/16". I just double checked everything and it should all be good now.
I would try to wind my own pickups, and I would put more effort into making the frets. Also, if I did this again, I think it would be cool to make it as an archtop.
I just edited the Instructable and put in all the final measurements, if you're still interested.
Hello! A few people were asking for the dimensions, so I edited the Instructable and put them in the final step. And yes, this is a tenor Ukulele, so you can play regular ukulele songs.
Very cool! how does it sound?
Thanks so much for commenting! I've seen some cigar box guitars before and they definitely look cool.
I'm afraid my ukulele is a tenor, so my measurements won't help much if you're building a soprano. If you're building an ukulele though, you should probably do some research on scale length, because it's really important, and the measurements need to be extremely precise. But if you know the scale length on a soprano is 35 cm, just enter that into stew mac's fret calculator and it'll give you everything you need to know.
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and vote!
I haven't done a side-by-side comparison, but as far as i'm concerned, it works pretty well.
haha, yeah, It's pretty hard to find pickups for a ukulele, so I had to settle for guitar pickups.

very cool! have you considered entering this into the "before and after" contest?
Great job! This is a really cool prop to make. I definitely think adding more weathering would enhance the look though.
ET, Spirited away, La La land.
Haha, I remember my history professor showing us that comedy sketch back when I went to school.
Great design. Don't know if you mentioned this or not, but around how much did it cost you(not including the go-pro)?
This is so cool!
Cool lamp! Also, great job on your design sketching class! I learned a lot, and it fueled my interest in drawing again.
Congratulations on winning the grand prize! Very creative project. How did you come up with the idea?

Pretty cool! I was dumpster-diving in my neighbor's trash a while back and I found a really nice silver briefcase that would be perfect for this.

These look so good! I think I might make them!
Just made them. They didn't look even close to as good as yours, but they tasted delicious! Even my dad, who doesn't like sweets, thought they were good. Nice job!

Wow, what a coincidence. Just the other day, my mom was talking about how she needed one of these. I might just have to make one for her!
Well, I imagine it must hard to find sponsors for the contests. We should be lucky there are as many giveaways as there are!
Whoa! These look so delicious! This is a very well made instructable, too. lots of great pictures. I might have to make these sometime!

Whoa! this is a really cool idea. I have an broken old bed frame that I don't need, so this might be what to do with it. It would be nice if you could put up a video of it being played, though.

Awesome! This would be great for parties.
Totally! I'd love to hear how it sounds
Harvesting your own clay, dirty but delightful!
Voted! This looks a really fun project to do! There's lots of natural red clay here in North Carolina, so I might have to give this a go sometime.
Well done! I really like how it turned out! I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to making it, but if I do, I think what I'd do differently is, instead of having a pull-out drawer, I'd make the base entirely hollow, so I could put CD's in there.
Awesome! I was meaning to make something like this a while back, but I don't really have the experience with electronics.
Nice instructable! I really like how you photographed the cookies against a black background.

In terms of songwriting, I think Eleanor Rigby, Blackbird, and In My life are the best. In terms of singing though, I'd go with "Oh! Darling," because I love the way Paul screams through the entire song.
Guitar, piano, and the Ukulele :)
My favorite band's the Beatles, and my favorite song of theirs is blackbird.

A good amount of people play instruments, so you could offer a some instruments.Also, while I do like the simple-but-practical prizes, like cameras, Ipads, and 3d printers, I'd also like to see some newer technology. For example, I had no Idea what the PocketLab was until I saw it in the maker olympics, but now I feel like I desperately need it. When I look at a contest, and I scroll down to where the prizes are listed, I want to be surprised by what I see.
Looks Awesome! You can definitely tell you put a lot of time into this. Have you considered using an electromagnetic pickup though? it sounds like you're getting a bit of background noise with that piezoelectric pickup.
