Buy a ukulele and you might play it a few times before stashing it in a closet forever. Build a ukulele and you'll connect with your instrument on a whole new level. After spending a few hours putting together this Ukulele Kit ($42), you'll feel obligated to follow through on music lessons. Just be glad that Hawaiians are (probably, for most readers) thousands of miles away and unable to hear you butchering their traditional music for those first few months of learning.
