Ukulele Design and Construction by D. Henry Wickham

StewMac Resonator plans both round neck (biscuit) and square neck (spider) versions.
I bought both sets because I made a round neck with a spider resonator! They’ve yellowed with age; I think this is because they’re blue-print style. Price £5:00 each.
The above prices don’t include postage (the Clapton book is heavy!) but I’ll give you a quote, if you want to buy one or more items. You can get my email address from my website.
Here's the resonator that I built! (not for sale!)
