Week 3!

Firstly, here’s another great video from Chris……..
This week’s work? Well, I’m still working on the finish on these two mandolins.
Whilst waiting for the mandolins to dry, I’ve also been working on the rosette for the next twin-pointer for Andrew. Here’s a sequence of photos that will give you an idea of the work involved.
 Ta Dah!

Octave Mandolin

Being a bit remiss blogging lately; I missed out on posting some photos of Philip’s Octave Mandolin. So below are some choice pictures of the complete instrument. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

New Year's resolution.......

A belated Happy New Year to you all. I’m aware that I’ve not done a post recently; so my New Year’s resolution will be to do one post per week, whatever it is (let’s see how long that lasts!).
This week has seen all the woodwork on the next Standard mandolin completed. Sitka, English walnut and maple. This one is for Paulo and is Portugal bound.
The next step will be to take it apart again and apply the finish.
