The Incredible Folding Ukulele

Here’s a cool gift idea for the ukulele player that has it all… It’s a DIY kit for a folding soprano sized ukulele. The parts are made of laser cut bamboo. All you need to complete the project is some sandpaper, glue and a few other miscellaneous items and you’ll be able to build your own instrument that just happens to fold up into a nifty little package that can easily stow in your backpack. The resulting uke won’t sound as good as a traditionally built instrument, but it will make a fun do-it-yourself project. There are two kit designs to choose from, which are priced from $75-$87.50 (pictured). If you don’t want to take the time to build the kit, you can even buy them already finished… but for the price of the finished kits ($250 – $375), you could buy a decent regular uke.
