Happy Holidays!

First thing’s first; Amanda and I wanted to thank you for your continued support and friendship throughout this most difficult of years and wish you Happy Christmas and best wishes for the new year!

The body of the electric mandolin is now together and all that extra internal work hidden from view- unless you watch the video!

Chambered body, electric mandolin: tailpiece

I’ve just made the tailpiece for the next emando and the video below gives you an idea of the processes involved in making one. One thing that occurred to me as I was making it; it’s one of the few things that I make, where you can start and finish it in the same session- no gluing, no finishing etc. just hewn from one piece of material!
