tenor ukulele kit build

By Mikuke from Milford, OH
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, October 30, 2012

I purchased my tenor kit along with the DVD in October. As I built the uke, I often referred to the DVD, which I considered a great help. The directions were very straightforward. I completed it in two weeks. I applied 10 coats of spray laquer and rubbed it out with pumice and rottenstone and gave it a final polish with paste wax. The finish turned out beautiful. The sound is as good or better than my $300.00 concert. I will definitely be building more in the future.

Easy to build kit

By Tim Terry from Alberta, Canada

You can build this kit with hand tools and sand paper but I wound up buying a lot of tools (fret hammer, nippers, sanding station, router, cam clamps, very accurate ruler) to help with the job. It might have been the extra tools, but the ukulele I built with this kit is far better than anything I have bought for double the cost of the kit. It makes a very nice instrument. I bought another kit and look forward to my next project.

My first ululele

Nice Project

By Peter O from Portland, OR
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, April 27, 2012

I have made a few acoustic guitars from scratch and my 11 year old son wanted to try building an instrument with me for a school project, so we chose the Tenor Ukulele kit. We had a great time together and built a lovely, nice sounding instrument that he is very, very proud of.

Concerns: The top and back blanks were cut at a angle to the grain direction (~15 deg). They are oversized a bit, so we were able to adjust a bit, but things are still not quite lined up. I'm sure if we had called StewMac, they would have shipped us new parts, but we had no time.

Overall, I would recommend this kit and would build another one.

Fantastic Uke that you can take pride in playing

By BryanC from IL

This is a great sounding uke! The components are top quality and the service from StewMac is second to none. Tech support answered ALL of my questions during the build and when I had an issue with a "cupped" fretboard, the StewMac crew sent me a replacement immediately without any hassles at all.
If you are an intermediate woodworker, you should not have any troubles building a great sounding uke.

Tenor Uke with inlay

By myuke from Melbourne, Australia
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, March 08, 2012

This is my second build after a soprano kit. Went crazy with inlay. Extra tools I added to my kit this time were the Dremell precision router base and the Optivisor with LED lights both made the fine work a dream. Also got the Deadblow hammer which made the fretting less fretful. (Sorry about that) Tha inlay is Huon Pine and Ivory on the headstock which I salvaged from a derelict piano 35 years ago.

Tenor Ukulele Kit is Awesome!

By Joe Loverti Sr. from Miamisburg, Ohio

The first thing you'll notice when you open the box is the first-class quality of all the parts. I took my time and followed the instruction booklet. It also helps to review on-line posts on youtube and other sources. You should have some basic woodworking skills and yes, you will need some woodworking tools. There are easier, cheaper kits for those without the skill set or the tools. I'd say this kit is not meant for a rank beginner. Though I'm sure newbies have built a nice ukulele from this kit. My finished ukulele looks terrific and sounds awesome. I'm very pleased with this product and am seriously thinking of getting another one to build because I enjoyed it so much the first time.

Our very expensive ukulele project

By Carolyn Mays from lake oswego, or
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, October 30, 2011

When we received our tenor ukulele kit,we were pleased with the quality of all the parts and with the instructional DVD that we ordered as well. We became increasingly discouraged by all the very expensive equipment that we have had to purchase to build our single ukulele.
We are now stuck on the "fret seating" step...it's not working at all. We have made sevaral phone calls to get help...luthiers want $300 to do it for us. It is only fair to inform buyers of the investment in tools they need to build your kits. And you may want to consider pre-seating frets in the kit.

Educational-Nice Tone

By Jim Elliot from Ca
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, July 13, 2011

I love this little thing. I bought this to get some cheap practice before gluing together an archtop guitar I'm working on. I didn't really follow the instructions. Maybe better if I had. I built a mold to the shape of the drawing and used it rather than the suggested jig. Without the mold the side shapes would have been pretty far off. I used home made spool clamps rather than rubberbands. I used an edge trimmer router bit with roller guide to trim the top and back.

Most troublesome for me was fitting the neck. I was impatient and wanted to hear some results. Fit could have been a lot better, but in the end the ukulele plays well and sounds really pretty. I'm hooked and I got the education I wanted.

This kit was my first attempt to construct any musical instrument. I found it great for giving me some basics, the instructions and the DVD were of great value to me, both were easy to follow. Overall a great success and a very good kit.
