    Hey all, I really hope I put this in the right place since its a weird build but mods move if nessesary.

    Ok, so this thread is to show how I make ukuleles! Kinda doesn't fit in on this sight but I don't have any basses to build so I thought why not post a uke build instead?. So I am going to make 2 ukuleles from scratch. One is going to be a 15" scale solidbody and the other is going to be a 17 or 18" scale semi-hollow type uke. I'm making both necks out of poplar and the fret boards are going to be made out of walnut. The body of the 15" is going to be made out of ceder and poplar. The body of the 17 or 18" is going to be ceder and white ash.

    Small update. I have glued the necks up and my friend attempted to make the body for his uke and failed badly!
    Here's a picture of the body for laughs
