How did you attach the neck to the body? Looks a bit untraditional. Can’t tell if that’s a screw head on the back or what. It looks beautiful I think MOP is the right choice for this uke. Is your head made of koa like the body, or mahogany, or something else? Looks a little different shade than the neck. Great job!

Thanks again. The headplate is Koa on top of the scarf jointed mahogany neck. The neck is bolted on with a flat head 6mm Knock Down fitting bolt. The neck joint is small but secure.

Beautiful. Is this your design? I’ve been thinking about building one for the heck of it. I’ve been following Matthias at Woodgears who is in the process of building one. As usual he’s great at displaying the how to’s.
Thanks for sharing.

Are there instructions or plans on how to build? I really like this uke.

I based the design on what off-cuts of Koa that I had, plus the scale length. the body is nearly 2” deep. 10” long and nearly 6” wide. Standard bracing and kerfing.
