I decided to build a Ukulele from a cigar box using one of the neck blanks from CB Gitty. Make sure you check out the song at the end of the video.

Excellent build and video! Twisted Island songs never sounded better!

Thanks Dave & AGP. Glad you guys like it. I like it a lot more than I thought I would. Who knew? ;-)

Although having built a few myself, I must admit I'm not much of a Uke Fan, probably due to the fact that I have never put in the time to learn how to play the little critters, BUT!, your #24 Uke is the best looking one I've ever seen, "Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful" Well Done!  :-)

Very nice sound Poorness. Nice demo.

Thanks fellas. I really like the way it came out. I think I'm going to build another uke just for fun.

Nice little build there Poorness ! sounds pretty solid to !!

It looks and sounds great.  Good vocals too.  One thing you can do if you prefer a more guitar like sound is to get a low G string.  I like them.  But man, I would hesitate to change anything on whitey. Sounds great.
