you can read up on Yoppy's excellent write-up (and videos) on his "ukurine" that he crafted from a toy tambourine.

Russ beat me to it. I got pretty much the whole build, with the exception of installing the frets.

The idea of a Tambo-lele reminds me of this (http://www.wsukes.com/46/u46.html) creation of Dave at Waverly Street Ukes. ;)

And he makes quality intruments, I have a Banjolele from him and love it :D
