The bass was made out of 4 component's: A Satellite disk (that I took of our house just so I could do a project "Tim Sway" style), the back of an old chair, a corner post of a cabinet that our neighbours wanted to get rid of and a few pieces of hardwood that came (as many times) from the showroom samples that a friend gave me a long time ago. I extended it with a 4,99 bridge piezo and pre-amp out of china, the strings were 12 Euro. (but I have still 2 left to make an other bass instrument).
A Ukelele I made out of reclaimed wood and recycled materials for the Woodworking Europe Collaboration Build.
Beech for the sides (bend on a heat-pipe) and the neck, Oak panels for front and back (arch-top planed) some old floorboard hardwood for all little parts. The tuners were made out of some levers and Ikea screws.
