I thought you might like to see my latest effort.
This is a Sopranino Ukulele (smaller than the standard Soprano uke you see in the music shops).
For comparison purposes, it is leaning on the Tenor Uke I built for The Woodworker last year. The body of this instrument is 8 inches long!
The body and neck are mahogany, the soundboard is sitka spruce, and the head-facing, fingerboard, bridge and sound-hole inlay are Australian Myrtle.
This has been the fiddliest instrument build I have ever tried, and I never want to make one this small again
