project 010
Alex' ukulele


My son, Alex, turned 16 in 2020. It felt appropriate to create an instrument for the occasion. He is into ukuleles so it was an easy choice. 

I had the last, but a bit small pieces of that magnificient flame walnut used in earlier projects, so it had to be used here. The neck is the fall-off from the walnut bass's neck. The headplate is leftovers from the ziricote classical. The soundboard is sprouce and a nice piece of ziricote was used as the fretboard.
