    The Uke making bug is a hard biter and I have made a couple of slightly less glorious attempts to start with and thought I had better go the whole hog and build the most outrageously far out Ukulele I could think of. While I was waiting for the parts for that one to arrive I knocked out this one. H...

    The ingredients are mostly the same as spaghetti bolognaise or as we call it in Australia: Spag bol but with very little alteration of how they are cooked and maybe an extra ingredient or two and the result takes on a noticeable Thai influence. By way of introduction I am an Australian of Dutch des...

  • 08/03/15--00:00: Uke'n'paddle
  • Is it  ukulele? Is it a paddle? Why Yes! It is both! A ukulele and a paddle all in one – what more canoe ask for? All the great inventions of the world are combination items – the car boat, the shopping bag raincoat, the Swiss army knife and my personal favourite – the peanut butter and honey sandw...

  • 08/03/15--00:00: Simple canoe
  • There have been a few canoe like objects put up on instructables but this one is really a pirogue- or flat bottom canoe. There is actually a lot of theory on boats like this one but the basic idea is you take two planks, stick them together at the ends with a frame or two in the middle, fill in the...

    A nut and bridge string spacing guage allows you to space strings evenly on a string instrument by showing you where to put the notches and/or holes on the nut and bridge. As I can not justify the joy of the bridge gauge made by Timbuck (AKA Ken) http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?5...

  • 08/03/15--00:00: The pink chunder
  • Sounds disgusting, looks revolting, tastes surprisingly good. Picture if you will a room. A room with four young Australian men in it. Needless to say there is alcohol and cards involved. At some point in the conversation the topic wanders to revolting drinks: tomato sauce(ketchup) milkshakes; port...

    You can't make a ukulele with a pocket knife they say.You need hundreds of dollars worth of fancy tools and super special skills and fancy materials they say.Well you can consign those views to the scrap heap of history. This uke will be built with a pocket knife(and a ruler) using mostly materials ...

    This ultra simple tool will ease the task of emptying a box trailer or truck bed, though it probably won't work too well on trucks with wheel arches in the bed. It turns your trailer into a cheapo dump truck.Get any old bit of tough looking grubby wood just long enough to go most of the way across y...

    I only use my Garden blower vac in the Autumn. Fall is a USA and Canada thing. So I got my Blower Vac out and started turning all the neighbors falling leaves that blow over onto my place into lovely fine mulch for my garden and half way through disaster strikes and the bag starts to leak. So I pull...

You thank the stars you bought the flat one and not the ribbed one. You pause to hope the modera...

    I have mentioned in a few places that I use a vegetable peeler as a spoke shave which is basically a tool for shaving off bits of wood, traditionally on spokes for wooden wagon wheels (hence the name). Strangely enough I think a lot of people think I am joking so here is a video of me using it. I us...

    In my travels I fell in love with the Tahitian ukuleles I saw in Vanuatu, which appeared to be hewn out of half a coconut tree log with little attention to finery and I assume plenty of attention to playability and fun. A lot of Tahitian ukuleles have 8 strings (4 pairs of identical strings) and thi...

  • 03/07/17--09:16: Gang Saw Thin Rasp
  • One of my favourite tools is my Japanese Shinto rasp. It is a precision piece of kit and it is one of the best rasps I have ever had but it is some times just a little too big, and other times a lot too big. This little tool make it into the spaces where the bigger rasp will not go. It could be thou...

  • 08/19/17--16:42: Band Sawn Bowl Ukulele
  • This instructible will show you how I quickly made a bowl back lute like ukulele from a length of 6 by 1 dar (dressed all round) pine, that's 140 by 19 for those of us in metric land. The trick I am showing off in particular is the use of a band saw to make the back. You might notice there are two u...
