Tenor ‘Ukulele Progress Report 3

Luthiery Self-Taught:

Tenor ‘Ukulele built from scratch
from a plan sheet by Robert Lattuga

Made from scraps of wood from the local hardwood shop:

Top: Sitka Spruce
Back: Cherry
Sides: Poplar
Neck: Poplar, Mahogany
Headstock Veneer: Mesquite

It’s my first attempt and has many flaws. I’ve learned some of what mistakes not to make, though, and my second one will be much better.

Music is Wind Marching for Rain, by Puddle of Infinity, from the YT Free Audio Library. Thanks!
