I (being of those not expert uke builders) thought it would be a cool project. I'm thinkin of gettin one, maybe painting some stuff on it.

That's a Grizzly kit, get it here (http://www.grizzly.com/products/H3125) and save a bunch of money

if you have fun with this project and want to get more serious in uke building, go to pete howlett's website. He has great kits to buy and top quality selections in wood. he also has youtube videos that explain and demonstrate techniques used in ukulele building.

It's the same Basswood bodied one that Thomann sell in Germany for about 20 euro's. I've almost finished making one. They also do a Mahogany bodied one (ply) for about 10 euro's more and it has a much nicer fingerboard.

Stew-Mac ukulele kits (http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Kits/Ukulele_Kits.html) are solid mahogany and sell for $99.99. I've had one on my wish list for quite a while. May yet get around to it. :)

Seems fun, just for the fact that I could give it a crazy paint job.

Could you play it while playing the uke? Someone would have to hold it for you. What a great look! :cool:
Now.. if only I could breathe through my nose... mild allergies hinder me.

Ditto that! I have a Grizzly kit that I'm working on for my 3-year-old daughter. It was $24.95 plus 6 or so for shipping. Mahogany ply. Nice looking, but Emma says it has to be red, so the appearance of the wood doesn't really matter...

It's on sale! I might get one and make a Pink Hello Kitty one for my 4 year old. Something like this:http://i15.ebayimg.com/04/i/001/3e/18/2cff_1.JPG Maybe she'll stop stealing my uke.

My brother-in-law gave me a nose flute years ago. I got to where I could play a passable version of Beethoven's Ode to Joy on it - then stepped on it and never really felt the need for another. I guess I reached the pinnacle of noseflutedom and decided to end on a high note. I never wanted to end up on skid row, playing Barry Manilow on the noseflute for pennies, just hoping to raise enough cash to feed my odd instruments habit...
