Whenever you build a one-off instrument such as the
mandocello, you’re not just building the instrument but also various jigs and
fixtures to make its construction possible. Today, in order to route the female
part of the neck’s tapered dovetail, I had to make up this jig. Might not ever
use it again, but it was essential for this task.
