After planning, gathering the parts, and designing this ukulele, I was finally able to start build this LEGO ukulele.
Here is the ukulele before I glued the top on. As you can see in the picture, I followed the traditional building method and installed bracing on the top and back.
This is the completed ukulele with Strings.
Any idea why I used these shirts for this picture?
I hired a new setup technician to help me adjust the string action.
Here is a video about the building of the LEGO ukulele. Towards the end there is a playing demo.
I had a great time at this year’s Utah Uke Fest. I taught a workshop where we made fretboard keychains. I then played two songs at the main evening concert.

I built a ukulele for the Waterjet Channel. Naturally, they cut it in half.
A couple months ago, I submitted a few videos to collaborate with fellow ukulele enthusiasts. As luck would have it, both of the videos were completed and uploaded to YouTube close together.
Check out the videos below. And make sure to subscribe to both Pismo and Pockets.
I’m not exactly sure how it happened. How I found the channel. I mean, where is the start of a circle? Where does the answer exist before the question is asked?
It’s as if I awoke from a slumber, struggled to see through blurry eyes, then everything finally became clear.
I found Pismo Ukulele.
Pismo Ukulele claims to merely offer “easy and simple ukulele tips and trick for the pre-beginner”. And it does do that…in spades. But he also presents material that challenges paradigms of conventional ukulele groupthink. Part time traveler, part ukulele sage, part Kaufman.
I subscribe to a lot of ukulele channels, but I always make time to partake of Pismo’s latest offerings.

Let’s get him to 200 subscribers!
Scott has a great YouTube channel that features awesome songs. He asked for song suggestions, so I asked for Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
He made a great version, and even gave Circuits and Strings a shoutout.
Scott also started a channel where he is documenting his quest to grow an avocado tree. His accent, the subject matter, and the theme song all make it a winner. Go and subscribe.

I just added three handmade travel ukuleles to the FOR SALE TAB.
Get them before they are gone.
