With the help of a bit of wood glue, a screwdriver, and a drill, you'll be strumming away in a matter of hours. This is an awesome project for kids to do with their parents, as the completed instrument is compact, easy to learn, and fun to play.

Ukuleles rock. Build your own and you will rock, too!

Ukulele's are a distinctly Hawaiian instrument. Every chord and strum oozes white sand, a gentle breeze through a palm tree, and a fruity drink with an umbrella. This is the type of instrument that could calm those angry Nickelback Boys.

Now, you can build your own ukulele at home with the My Ukulele Kit!

This rockin' kit + a few hours = ukulele bliss

The My Ukulele Kit is a wonderful do-it-yourself project. The ukulele's small size makes it a great instrument for kids and the relatively small number of parts ensures a frustration-free building experience.

Did we also mention that everything sounds so darned chill and relaxed on a ukulele? You adults are going to love having this guy around. You can keep your uke next to the couch and strum away without even having to sit up. It's so addictive — especially with the bond created by having built it yourself.

Everything you need to build your own ukulele is included in the kit.

Of course it works!

Check out the video below to hear the uke you're going to build. Sadly, building a ukulele did not fix Jamie's tone deafness.

Please note that the style of the ukulele has changed slightly since this demonstration was made.

Fun to decorate, too!

The My Ukulele Kit is made from unfinished wood. You can paint it, stain it, adorn it with stickers, embellish it with drawings (perhaps of the Vat19 logo?), or simply leave it "au naturale".

The point is to have fun. So get started and buy, buy, buy!

Half the fun building your own ukulele is decorating it.
The Build Your Own Ukulele Kit allows you to design the type of Uke you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How hard is it to build?

Answer: It really isn't too difficult. Including drying time (for gluing the neck to the body), it should only take about 3 hours total.

Question: What tools do I need to build it?

Answer: In addition to wood glue, you'll need a Phillips screwdriver and a drill for creating pilot holes to attach the bridge to the body. You may also need a clamp to hold the neck to the body while your wood glue dries.

Question: Does it come with any songs?

Answer: The instructions do include one song, but we think you'll be better off hitting up YouTube. There are many channels devoted to teaching you how to play the ukulele.

Question: Why don't I just buy one that is already made?

Answer: Because building stuff is fun! Being able to personalize the design of your uke along with simply knowing that you put it together makes it special. Roy Hobbs could have used any ol' baseball bat. But carving one himself from a tree struck by lightning? That's how you knock the cover off the ball.
