The Kingfisher Ukulele

Artist / Maker: Spatchcock & Wurzill


This is a truly original piece, lovingly handcrafted from reclaimed oak and vintage (50s) biscuit tins. The ukulele is a fully playable musical instrument made by local craftsman, Robin at Spatchcock and Wurzill. It sounds great acoustically and has a built in pick up for amplification.

The tin has a charming used patina which is to be expected from a vintage item.

This would look and sound amazing in your local ukulele band, it’s never too late to learn a new skill and meet people!

Designed and made in North Yorkshire

“The necks of my cigar box and vintage tin guitars and Ukuleles are hand made and shaped using reclaimed and upcycled hardwood furniture  such as Teak, Oak, Mahogany and Beech.

I  reclaim and upcycle all manner of boxes,  vintage tins and other enclosed spaces to make the guitar body and therefore  all my guitars have different characteristics determined by the body shape, size and material.  As a general guide, the bigger the body, the bassier the sound.”
