over the next 6-10 months ill have access to a workshop, fully equipped. over the first half i just want to get used to the machines and reading plans by building tables, chairs, etc then moving to smaller more intricate work (jewelery boxes, etc) towards the end i do want to build a uke.
here are my questions:
1) does anyone have drawn plans?
2) woods, will any hardwoods work? what about softwoods?
i like Pete Howlett's idea of using indigenous woods.
3) since i dont have all that much money for woods, ill only be able to get a limited supply of woods. how would building a solid electric be for costs, build time, ease of building, etc?
4) as a first time builder, what would be the easiest to build soprano, concert, or tenor?
