Guy Builds Flamethrower Ukulele Inspired By Guitar Used In ‘Mad Max’

This flamethrower ukulele is Caleb Kraft’s fiery homage to the 2015 action-movie Mad Max: Fury Road. The ukulele was inspired by Doof Warrior’s flamethrower guitar from Mad Max.

“I didn’t want to try to replicate exactly what he had, and I also wanted to scale things down to be marginally safer. My version can be built from hardware store parts in a very short amount of time,” Kraft writes in the introduction to his how-to guide. Playing with fire can be hazardous to your health, so make sure you use common sense and follow appropriate safety precautions if you decide to build your own flamethrower-instrument.

The married Springfield, Missouri resident is the community editor for Make: Magazine, and has previously worked as an IT administrator, small business owner, and an instructor in 3D modeling.

I'm in love, but I don't think I'm going to make one for myself. You lost me at "keep your hair tied back". :)

As I long ago realized, after moving from a standard 6-string to a 12-string dreadnought guitar, then "test-driving" both a ukele and a mandolin, my hands need a LOT of fingering "real estate"! As fascinated as I am by this concept, I think the necessary scale adaptations exceed even my pyromaniac proclivities...and I don't think my dog would be a fan....

I am sure at the "Burning Man Festival" this contraption will go down a treat - Great Balls of Fire!

I guess that's one way to maintain effective social distancing
