Topic tags/keywords: guitar building ukulele building tutorial jigs bending wood

Both links are completely safe. I’ve been looking at them for a while now – trying to build up the courage to attempt my first ukulele build.

This first link has a great picture tutorial – the “how to” for the Rosette Inlaying is AMAZING. There is some really unique/cool jigs in here, as well as a process of steam bending wood with a heating blanket. definitely check that out if you’ve never heard/seen it before.

Link1

This second link has both picture tutorials AND video (from youtube) about making a ukulele – but the same techniques could be used for a guitar. very detailed and very awesome tutorial. The pic links are at the top of the page, and the video links are at the bottom. They are all step by step – and really easy to follow

Link 2

anyways, just thought I’d share this with you guys – they are not my sites – so i’m not promoting anything – just thought they were awesome resources. seeya
