Thanks tateharmann !!
You should try to build a guitar ! Unless you want to build a Ukulele because you love ukuleles, I would advice against starting with one. It is not much easier than a guitar. Get a good guitar kit (such as lmii), a good book or two, Robert Obrien or Bogdanovich videos, and 1 year later you will have a very decent guitar.
The only problem, that any amatheur luthier can confirm, is that it is a highly addictive activity. You have been warned !
