In a way this might fit in the pornography section, but then on the other hand that would be unfair to all of the efforts the man who built it put in it.

Most likely this has already been portrayed at this forum before.

Hum ... I wonder about getting some Koa matches, and .... No, it would be easier just to buy tailings from a Ukulele factory. He should have left a match head or two in place. No, wait, that wouldn't be too good if someone shouted "Strike up the band!" I wonder if anyone has ever performed on a burning Ukulele?

I guess I'm just not into the matchstick thing. I wonder, though, what other odd materials ukes have been made from. I know about the cigar box ukes. But, what else is out there?

it looks pretty, and there is alot of work put into that. I dunno about sound though but the looks are there

Must have been one heck of a smoker.

It says the builder worked for 5 h each day and it took 400 h to build. It is certainly a nice job. Maybe he walked around and asked just anybody: "do you have a match?" ;-)

I was hoping it would fit in a matchbox sorta like a smaller version of one of those mini koalohas.
