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!

Nice kit

By

Verified Buyer


I ordered the tenor uke kit & it's about half done now. Overall, it's a really nice kit. One complaint that could be easily addressed - the neck and tail blocks were about 1/4" too high, and had to be trimmed - not easy to do with small pieces in a small shop. Seems like that would be an easy fix. I also don't enjoy fretwork - not a complaint really (I'm just not that skilled). I would pay extra for a fully fretted fingerboard. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

Wanted to try making a ukulele from kit to better understand how they went together so I could correct tuning problems with my old ukuleles. Instruction book was clear with enough illustrations guiding me to know what I was doing. Think I will stick to this one.

Ukulele Kit

Kit arrived; my twin grandchildren & grandpa will begin putting it together in the next couple of weeks. We were disappointed that neither the kit or StewMac provides a rosette for the ukulele. Do we need to find another source for rosette? If yes, what's their web site. Thanks, Cecil--

Love the kit!

I put a spruce top on it because I have 4 other ukuleles all mahogany topped. Wanted a different look. Picture should be self explanatory. Very fun pastime. Basic work bench and hand tools. I got 2 guitar spruce slats from StewMac and glued them together. Would have been nice to have a thickness sander available. Took me several days of off and on sanding to get the 1/8" soundboard down to around 1/16" more and less. Wanted it a hair less than 1/16" around the sound hole area.

Very Nice Kit

By

Verified Buyer


I always wanted to build a musical instrument so this kit seemed like a good bet. Overall, the kit is excellent and the result is a high quality instrument with excellent sound. I would recommend getting the mandolin kerfing, you will need 4 pieces which will fit exactly for the tenor. The kerfing supplied with the kit is too thin I think. I would also recommend getting new strings. Even though this is a kit, I found this to be a bit challenging even as an experienced woodworker. You will probably need a few tools for this, particularly deep c clamps which can be hard to find. Agree that one of the neck holes is off. Overall though, really excellent, takes maybe 20 hours to put together and it really is a high quality instrument when complete.

Stew Mac Concert Ukulele Kit

I am building this ukulele for my mother. She had one as a teen.

It is still under construction. So far I have the top and back braces glued on, and the sides joined with the kerf strips. Just freed it up from the jig - excellent suggestions how to build one included in the instructions.

I have found the instructions appear complete; very little left to discover on your own. I thought the tip about using rubber bands to increase the holding strength of the clothespins when attaching the kerf strips was very cool.

I bought a kit each for both my daughter and son-in-law for birthday gifts. I was going to assemble the kits for each of them but decided that they may want to assemble the kits themselves. Also shipping a kit would be much easier and less prone to breakage that the assembled ukuleles. I did look inside one of the kit boxes and did determine that it was not above their skill level to assemble them. I also purchased the kerfed lining for a mandolin as suggested in other reviews for these kits.

Fun project

Made my first uke a year ago, then decided to try a kit. The wood is very nice and the instructions are very straight and simple. Made the tenor and bought 2 sopranos to give away as birthday presents. As always, high quality, and excellent service.
