There are two main types of wood craftsmanship for ukulele boxes: plywood and veneer. The different craftsmanship also have a certain influence on the timbre. Simply put, plywood is a synthetic wood board, which is made up of three layers of thin boards interlaced horizontally and vertically. The overall thickness is thicker. The combination of wood fiber horizontal and vertical strength is strong and easy to maintain. It belongs to the common board craft of beginner-level ukulele. Veneer refers to a wooden board processed from pure natural wood. It can better restore the resonance and sound wave transmission ability of the wood itself, which is a common material used in ukulele from entry to advanced level. All in all, due to natural wood vibration reflection performance and vibration amplitude transmission performance, the sound of the single-board ukulele resonance box is more loud, pure and better. The sound of plywood will be worse, but the material is more stable and better maintained.
