This uke project started as a board I found on the floor of a woodshop in Baguio City, Philippines in 2014.

A man named Leo planed it, and sawed it into rough shape.

After letting it acclimate to the dry Utah dry, it became the body for a tenor solid body electric ukulele.

96048

It has a 17.5 inch scale length with a single coil pickup, and a volume control.

96049

The neck is mahogany and the fretboard is walnut.

This video shows more about its creation.

Whoa, way cool. I envy you guys that can see a block of wood on the floor and see a uke inside it. Well done.

17.5" scale is unusual. How did you decide on that instead of typical tenor 17"? Just curious.

Great video (and uke!). I like how you documented all the key build steps.

What's the last song you played? Sounds like Weezer?

17.5" might be a little unusual. I just figure anything close to 17.5" is close enough. :)

Good ear. It's the bridge and chorus of "Say It Ain't So" by Weezer. :rock:

My wife has a Silhouette Cameo (https://www.silhouetteamerica.com/shop/machines/cameo).

It can cut paper, vinyl, or even cloth. It's pretty cool.

Seeing the video, even if I only have a few databytes, makes it worthwhile. I've seen your blog a few times, and it too is really impressive. ❤️ love your work.
