It took me about 45 minutes (not including glue drying time) to put together a service-able ukulele from Wolfelele’s precut wooden components. The well-designed parts fit together in a way that ensured it didn’t end up crooked, and the triangular instrument sounds better than any other $100 ukulele I’ve played. The kit has everything you need, except wood glue, a Phillips screwdriver, sandpaper, and scissors. (I recommend that you refer to the online instructions rather than the paper ones as the former are more complete.) The website also has a downloadable teacher brochure and useful instructions on how to run a Wolfelele-building workshop.
