So what’s on the bench…..

Firstly, the French polishing of Youhei’s mandolin has been completed and it’s just hardening in the workshop. The quilted maple looks truly stunning, I’m sure you’ll agree!
Next on the bench is a Standard mandolin for Martin; he has opted for a couple of upgrades, a  cocobolo and abalone rosette, abalone head inlay and an under-saddle transducer. Also there’s a left-handed e-mando for Chris. 
Below are the two heads.
The rosette’s apparently “simple” design belies how tricky it was to make, however both Martin and I are happy with the outcome;-)
