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.

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.
