Boing Boing: Ukuleles made from demolished buildings

Mark posted this over on BoingBoing, and it's one of the most imaginative uke ideas we've come across recently.
'Japanese artist, Nabuaki Date, make ukuleles out of parts of soon to be demolished houses and buildings. The ukulele is then given to the owner of the house as a physical and acoustic embodiment of its memories and history.

'They are beautifully crafted and unique. If you follow the links to the flickr page you can find a few more that I have scanned in.'
