About This Item

Ukulele's are one of the hottest instruments on the market right now, people love them and just can't get enough of them. They make a great place to start if you're a new builder looking for that first project. They're simple, easy and a ton of fun (plus, they sound amazing!)

No Woodworking Experience Required!
We give you detailed instructions and bracing plans to guide you through each step of the build, from start to finish!

To reduce spring-back and aid stability the back and sides are made from high quality mahogany laminates—this will go a long way to ensuring your first build is painless and enjoyable. Available in soprano, concert and tenor sizes.

It looks good

It looks good (and complete). The mahogany is all very clear and pretty. I won't get to start building it until after Christmas.

Haven't started building it yet but the parts look great! I built an earlier version of this same kit but this one looks even better. Will get to it when I finish my dreadnaught kit.

Great starter kit! Great Price!

I bought this as an intro into Ukulele construction. I was a little surprised that the back is laminated, so will require binding to hide the laminations...but I had planned on adding binding and purfling anyway, so no biggy.

With the basics taken care of; bend sides, shaped neck, I can focus on upgrades.

Great kit...please hold the price!....I will be ordering another after completing this one.

Thanks StewMac!

Fun project!

I bought the soprano ukulele kit in November. A few issues with the updated 11/17 instructions:
1. Pg. 7, last paragraph in left column: the 2 blocks are NOT the same size. Small one goes at neck end.
2. Pg. 12, Drill the Neck Joint diagram: DO NOT follow those measurements. Measure the holes that are already drilled in the neck.
3. Pg. 13, Level the Frets with Sandpaper. Be Careful! The fret metal is soft and easy to damage!
4. Pg .19, Fit the Nut and Saddle. The supplied saddle is way too short. I used Item #0211, Micarta saddle blank, and made a taller saddle. There are YouTube videos that show how a proper setup can be measured.

Good luck and have fun!

Excellent kit. Parts fit precisely and neck needed little finish sanding. Included rubber bands were very helpful for clamping. Instructions comprehensive, although I would suggest spritzing the body linings with water in a plastic bag before attempting to bend. As with the old kits, body taper can be accomplished by installing the back linings at a slight angle and then sawing off the excess from the sides. Thanks StewMac.

Easy build

While I have some previous Cigar Box building in my past, this kit was well designed with a reasonable amount of work required. Everything fit, the instructions were good and few tools/jigs were required to achieve a great result. The $ investment was not intimidating which also helped in the initial purchase decision.

Fun project with the kids!

By

Verified Buyer


This was a great project that both of my young kids took part in and both learned a lot. It took us about 3 days to finish and they really sound nice. We inlayed a special coin in each. Such a sweet little instrument that hopefully will last a long time.
