Create Your Own Ukulele

Creating a Ukulele in easy steps

This course is about creating Ukulele in steps that are easy to follow

I teach using some common hardware tools but avoid using expensive, specialty tools. This course does not leave out any steps. Most items are built using ordinary hand tools, found in every other garage.

You will need access to a small workshop or a garage with some basic woodworking tools. There are also places where you can buy specialty tools to make some parts of the build go smoother. You will also need wood, strings, tuners and other materials to make the instrument (there is no cake without the ingredients).

This course is definitely for those who want the experience of playing their own instrument, handmade by themselves, for their own pleasure.


The first step in this course is to download a drawing to print, and I will show you how to use Adobe Illustrator for that step of the way. When it comes to actual woodworking, first we build a small jig but most stringed instruments are build using jigs. One section of the course will have extra material and answers to some of the questions that might pop up along the way. Please be active by asking questions if you feel you need more information on certain parts during the build. I create small recordings to answer your questions and I will post them as extra material. Remember I am here for you.
