Looks pretty good. Any detail photos? What kind of paint was used, and is there a sealer coat on it?

well it plays ok but the neck is from a 15 Mahalo so it goes out of tune easy however it sounds rather metalic i think it makes it sound rather interesting
and i didnt use any paint because it is just a allsorts tin

I stumbled upon a video last night of a guy playing a really nice looking tin can uke and it got me thinking that I would really like to make one. There is a huge flea market close to my house the weekend of the first Monday of every month. I think I just might have to go can shopping. Anyone have a source for decent necks?

A few weeks ago, I posted a question about keeping a uke in my car in the Texas summer heat. The concensus was that it was a horrible idea (pretty obviously). Still wanting to be able to take a uke with me to disc golf tournaments, camping and such, I started searching for a relatively humidity-proof and temperature-proof ukulele. I thought plastic was an option, but the temperature swings would really change the size of them. Carbon fiber would be great, but who can affor them.

I think a tin can just might be the answer.

Hmmmm. You got me thinking now. Republic ukes are made right here in Texas, about an hour away. If I fail in my tin-can efforts, perhaps that would be a good backup solution.
