Home Made Travel Uke
The idea of a Travel Uke was rooted in keeping my left hand fingers toughened up when on holiday. Commercial ones seemed a bit expensive for what I wanted so I decided to have a go.
My starting point was a Soprano kit from Amazon as a quick way to acquire the core hardware of tuners, nut, bridge and fingerboard.
For around £20 The project has resulted in a quiet, working, 414 mm long, soprano size ukulele.
The string layout is up-
The removable back is held in place by a magnet.
The removable bridge cover stops my hand touching the strings as there is very little space to hold the Uke when playing.
The bridge cover fixing screw gives a strap location if needed.
