A guitar, a mandolin, an octave and a tenor!

As you can see, I’m still French polishing Nadim’s guitar. I’m often asked about how long/how many coats/sessions etc. it takes to French polish an instrument, but to be honest there is no fixed amount, you keep going until you know it’s done! And, as you can see, we’re nearly there!
All the construction of John’s mandolin is complete (no more sanding!) and next week should see it strung up "in-the-white." Below are some choice photos of the mandolin.
And here’s the work, so far, on Adrian’s octave and tenor. As you can see, I was trying to get a bit arty with the B&W photo;)
