About This Item

Ukulele's are one of the hottest instruments on the market right now, people love them and just can't get enough of them. They make a great place to start if you're a new builder looking for that first project. They're simple, easy and a ton of fun (plus, they sound amazing!)

No Woodworking Experience Required!
We give you detailed instructions and bracing plans to guide you through each step of the build, from start to finish!

To reduce spring-back and aid stability the back and sides are made from high quality mahogany laminates—this will go a long way to ensuring your first build is painless and enjoyable. Available in soprano, concert and tenor sizes.

No Experience Needed... But It Couldn't Hurt

By

Verified Buyer


Recently finished the tenor uke kit. The wood/supplies, documentation, online vids, etc., are great. Instructions are easy to follow though I believe those with no prior woodworking experience might find some of it a bit challenging, but not insurmountable. I should point out the one error in my kit was the neck dowel hole placement. I had the sense to take measurements before drilling the body and found that one of the neck holes was a 1/8" (!) deviation from the plan. So I advise double checking on the critical stuff before proceeding. Aside from that, it was a smooth and delightful experience. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in making their own instrument. Thanks, StewMac. On to the D-28.

value for money

For the money, I do not think one can beat this deal. Everything is very functional, and it is really easy to assemble. One can add fancy purfling and bindings, and maybe a rosette, to make it look more "custom built", but even as is, it is really a genuine musical instrument.

Great idea, and everyone should try this!

Verified Buyer


I bought this kit to make a ukulele for my daughter. I admit this will be my first acoustic build. I think this kit should be fairly easy to assemble. I wish I had looked into this a little more, because I didn't know I would need several tools for this project. Maybe that is something Stew Mac aught to write in the descriptions.

I find all the components to be of pretty good quality! After I finish this, I will post a picture or two of it!

Fast response to my order

By

Verified Buyer


As usual my order was processed and shipped expeditiously (as I knew it would be) even though it was over the holiday season and no missing items.

The only drawback was the 60% bump up for shipping,exchange and duty.

I always know I will get fast service from Stemac.

Great fun kit!

Being a do it youselfer I couldn’t resist the the urge to build this for my Ukulele addiction. So far the build is going great and pieces are well made and the fit is really precise. Only thing i can recommend is take your time and you will be rewarded and happy with this beautiful little instrument. Thanks for the kit and keep the price down and I’ll probably build some more.

Nice kit. One part had to be replaced. They replaced the part promptly. I am very satisfied with the service.

Nice but add wider kerfing

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to introduce my son to lutherie. He was intrigued with guitars I had built in the past and wanted to start himself. Admittedly I have never built a ukulele specifically but I would recommend purchasing mandolin kerfing with the concert ukulele kit. The strips of wood supplied as kerfin are just not wide enough to provide a sufficient surface for glueing.

This concert ukulele kit is great

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the Concert Ukulele kit. Had a great time building it and ended up with a great sounding instrument. has a deep and sweet sound. Honestly I was very surprise by the sweet and warm sounds i can get out of it. Keep in mind that other than me building some small boxes this is my first instrument.

I strongly recomed this kit for people that want to start building their own instruments,

Jose

High quality kit, as an experienced builder I would say you DO need some good woodworking skills to get the best result! Just wish the lining had been proper kerfing. Delivery to the UK absolutely fantastic service from Stewmac as always - ordered Thursday am delivered Saturday am in December!
