Do Uke Kits Include Mold Plans?
Feb 6th, 2011 at 8:38am
 
Dear forum I am thinking about ordering a uke kit but cannot tell from the descriptions what is included in the actual plans in the kit. Do the plans show how to make the body mold for each kit?

Hello Canarycreek,

The plans cover the ukulele dimensions only.  From these measurements you will make the forms and jigs you need.  However, instructions on how to make these are not included.

You can get a start with some of the forms you will need listed here:
