Hey Nikolo,

I have just the site for you.

I am currently making my first Ukulele, it is a tenor, and I am really really happy with how it is coming.

I got the blue prints, and the Ukulele construction manual from the website of an Ukulele making school in Hawai'i.

The name of the school is Hana Lima Ia ( made by hand in hawaiian ), and they are located on the island of Oahu.

The website is www.hanalima.com
There is also an entire forum on the site devoted to Ukulele making, and it is full of nice people that are ready and willing to answer any Luthier question that you got.

I have used the forum alot, and it is helping me make a really great first Ukulele.

Anyway, check it out, and good luck if you do decide to build.

O btw, Dominator knows alot about Hana Lima Ia also, so for more in depth information, he is the guy to ask.

Take care and Aloha
