Make Your Own Ukulele


Explore the world of instrument making with Brain Monkeys and the Sam Beauford Woodworking Institute.

Students will make a soprano ukulele with a solid mahogany top. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.

Ukulele’s are one of the most popular instruments on the market right now, They are very easy to learn how to play, and due to the small size, they travel well. Building a ukulele is a great starting point if you are a new builder looking for that first project.  The students ukes will be tuned and ready to play upon completion of the class, and Luke may even teach you a few chords.
