I am a hobby builder making ukuleles in my shed, almost entirely with hand tools. I aim to use sustainably sourced timber for all my instruments, focusing on the use of indigenous British woods.

The body is made from Ash, the stripy grain hides the joins between the pieces. The frets are pressed directly into the neck Hawaiian style. This will have steel strings and a magnetic pickup, not quite a ukulele any more, but may sound interesting.
