it started as a rubber band flat piece of plywood guitar, but slowly it got better and became an acoustic four string Eukalele. The body is 1/4 inches plywood and the sides is leftover pine from an old IKEA bed, the other parts are some pieces of mahogany leftovers. After some tuning it sounds pretty good, and the girls love it.

Great looking instruments.

And the musicians seem to be enjoying them.

When is the band being organized?

These are nice looking and the kids sure do look like they love them.

Pretty serious project for kid’s toy. At least some use of IKEA. Beautiful instruments!
