Chambered Body, Electric Mandolin 2

The new emando has just gained some beautiful Koa sides. 




I’ve had this Koa in stock for donkey’s years and wanted to use it on something special.

You’ll see in the video that when I glued the Koa on, those Kreg clamps that I mentioned in the previous post, got some use- not in a way that envisaged, but I’ve often found that once you’ve got a new piece of equipment, you end up using it in many ways that you hadn’t even thought of.
