Thread: Monkey Pod

  1. #1

    Default Monkey Pod

    I own a really awful solid mahogany top ukulele that I would not even have the cheek to sell or give away. So what was the solution? I went and bought a coffee tray made of Monkey Pod (cost 5 = $7.30) I cut a new sound board from it to fit the mahogany one that I removed from the useless instrument and glued it in place and sanded it down. Result nicer sound better quality worthwhile exercise. Cheep answer.

    That's a really creative idea. I would love to see pictures of how it turned out.
