So glad I can finally share this one. It was a Christmas gift so I didn’t want to post about it until after I gave it to my daughter. Long story short, I really wanted to come up with a unique gift for each of my daughters that was made by me. I racked my brain and finally came up with this. My daughter loves music and I love to listen to her so I made her a new foldable ukulele. (That way she can bring it back to school with her without having to worry about breaking it on the plane…besides its just so cool). I found a pattern online and made some minor updates for the material and the GlowForge and magic…a wonderful Christmas gift.
This one is made out of proof grade mdf and as you can see in the video, it sounds pretty good.
Funny note. when I finished it, I tried stringing it and of course it didn’t sound right and I couldn’t tune it. Gave it to my daughter and she thought it sounded odd too. Then she figured out I put the strings on backwards. When she played it upside down, it sounded great. The video is after we put the strings in the right place. If she really enjoys it, we may make another one out of nicer woods, but for now, she really liked the mdf, it is different from the other ones I have bought her. And she can decorate it.
