In order to tune the instrument, i plan on having an electric tuner, in which when you pluck the string, the tuner is able to tell you the note. The thickness of each string has an effect on the pitch.
To build a Ukulele, I plan on using a small box as that base, like a tissue box, or cigar box or shoe box, but WOODEN. I'd also need wood for the neck, bridge, fingerboard, saddle and nut, and braces.
