Join Luthier and Gunflint Trail resident, Dave Seaton, for a 5 day course on how to build your own ukulele. Dave provides step by step instruction, tools, and the ukulele kit that includes stings, sandpaper, glue and locally resourced Maple and Spruce; some wood is even collected from the shores of Gunflint Lake, Hungry Jack and Loon Lake.

The major work has been done for you, but come prepared to use your basic woodworking knowledge to piece together your tenor ukulele.
