I always like to dabble around making some miniatures outside the scope of my main
activity which is to build Oceanic canoe models for collectors and art galleries. For the longest time I wanted to make a miniature UKELELE, and here it is.
CUTE, DELICATE, FASCINATELY BEAUTIFUL ARE ONLY A FEW OF THE ATTRIBUTES PEOPLE HAVE EXPRESSED WHEN HOLDING AND VIEWING THIS 5″1/2 TALL
But the admiration does not end here. As with truly expensive and beautiful Ukelele, the soundboard is cut out of dazzling curly koa wood, the bridge carved
in Ebony, the fretboard is Milo wood and the turning pegs tamarind wood. As if this is not all to make one marvel at this little piece of art, the Ukelele is resting on
a most charming little stand having the color od ivory but is in reality spolded tamarind wood.
It is sold with an acrylic showcase wide by 5″ x 4″ and tall by 7″3/4 resting on a 5″x 4″ koa base.
Available also is THE SOUNDS OF HAWAII on a separate listing (see above illustration) which is a set of 3 miniature Hawaiian instruments.
* The miniature Ukelele is not for playing.
