Step-by-step building guide! A good manual for the first-time builder (seasoned uke makers will pick up tips, too). Make Your Own Ukulele features complete projects for two different skill levels: a simple rectangular-bodied "boxer" model made with hand tools, and a professional-grade soprano ukulele built with shop tools. Both include reduced-size plans, a helpful list of materials and tools, a fret scale chart, instructional text and step-by-step color photos of the building process. Lots of entertaining tips, facts and trivia add spice to this book—ukulele chord diagrams, too. 96 pages, softcover.
