I have read several books on guitar making over the years and when I saw the “Make Your Own Ukulele” book by Bill Plant ( an Aussie) I recalled that I had some Koa out in the shed for many years and had done nothing with it…
So, voila! There is the result. The neck is Cherry, the fret board is Cocobolo, the front back and sides are Koa, the purfling is American Walnut, the interior blocks are Poplar, the bindings and braces are white Pine.
A very fun project that will probably take me in a new direction.
