Hi does anybody know where i could purchase the wood to build my own soprano ukulele in the uk? Id like to build it using a book matched set of curly koa and would require a neck blank and fingerboard blank etc...i would like to use good grade woods too...and what price should i expect to pay? Many Thanks Treeman.

You can get really beautiful koa sets from Pete Howlett. I suspect, however, that he will advise you not to begin with a soprano, but with a tenor or concert uke, as the soprano is more difficult and challenging.

Thanks for that...im already on a guitar luthier course so i will have a crack at it, as its soprano that i have fallen in love with...wish id discovered the ukulele before starting my course so i could have built a ukulele instead lol...Cheers Treeman.
