I wonder what these sound like! haha. I'd like to make ukes out of random materials, it would be fun to experiment.

I had heard that matchstick bracing was far superior to solid pieces of wood.... I wonder what happens if you strum it too hard... haha

Those could quite easily be used as weapons, or they might
