The sound you hear is the instrument itself — cheap tambourine body, solid black wattle top and bottom, Qld maple neck, Huon Pine veneer on head-stock, rosewood bridge. my usual untidy work.
I had a week’s holiday, and used some of it to make this ukulele. This time I used a wood branding/burning tool to create fret-position markers.
The black-box uke…
This is my home make ukulele with very thin top wood (1.3mm thickness on average). It is also very loud if strummed vigorously. At the moment I’m playing safe and not tuning it above F Bb D G.
This homemade uke has a huon pine top, a Queensland maple neck and headstock, a rosewood bridge, all based around a cheap tambourine body.
