Here are some of the design details. I wanted to build a contemporary Hawaiian ukulele. The body is solid koa, neck is H. mahogany and fretboard is ebony. The body shape is styled after an Ipu Heke Ole, the hula percussion implement. Like the variations in the shape of the ipu, the ukulele is assembled on an adjustable work board, so the shape will vary as the wood used dictates. It is a concert size, 15” scale. Stains used are Stew-Mac bright green and orange. My ukulele are normally fairly bright sounding, but I wanted this to be darker and warmer. Details on that to follow.
