The good ole ukulele! This is where I started building instruments.
My old cigar box ukes weren't as nice as and playable as they are now though.
The ukulele size works well for cigar boxes and when you pick the right box the tone and volume is great!

Just recently I ventured into the world of solder, wires and magnets! And metal...lots of metal.
The first electric was my now most popular original design
The Ammo Box Electric, made from a military ammo box.
Building instruments out of unordinary objects takes things in many directions and different types of instruments. From thumb pianos to very unique animal skull stringed instruments. The challenge of making these out of unusual objects is getting the neck to fit properly and fit well with the object.
