Classes – CSGM Ukulele Building Seminar

[O]ur first ukulele building seminar was a great success! Students came from as far away as Hawaii to build their instrument during this three day inaugural run.

In preparation for the seminar, we built many custom jigs and fixtures to make the whole process go more smoothly and quickly. Each student received a kit that contained most of the needed parts and hardware.

Over the course of three days, students learned how to glue in braces, shape their neck, glue in the neck, locate and install the bridge, cut and create their soundhole rosette, and more.

The process to build one of these kits is very similar to building an acoustic guitar, just in a smaller and more manageable scale. Taking this seminar is a great way to embark upon acoustic guitar building.
