Here it is. Some set up required


It's a concert uke kit from Hana Lima 'ia http://www.hanalimastore.com/servlet/the-114/Ukulele-Kit-Sapele-Tenor/Detail

I made a cajon this summer, which is basically a box with a big hole in the side so got cocky and ordered the kit for a winter project. I also ordered a neck from Mike as Mainland http://shop.mainlandukuleles.com/product.sc?productId=46&categoryId=8 because I have no confidence in my ability to shape a neck!

This will probably end up as firewood but I am looking forward to trying my hand.

Has anyone else built one of these?

I took a ukulele building class from Asa's dad Mike...I built a tenor Koa/Redwood top

I hope you have some experience with building...using tools,bending, measureing,glueing....etc
it is not as easy as I thought

do you also have the plans from Hanalima? as Mike builds with a Spanish heal for the necks....

I thought the most fun was shaping your own neck...

good luck
