Thanks for your kind comment RIGuitars! I appreciate it.
Gorgeous. A work of art.
I cut the handle off an old teaspoon to make the pick guard support brace.
There’s not much to say. The top and back are graduated. I spent a lot of time fitting the transverse braces under the top. This time, I didn’t kerf the linings but made them from solid strips. I carved a sharp ridge on the back. I inlaid 2 carbon fibre bars into the neck. I bought all the dark wood in various lumber yards in Mexico. I bent the sides over a cast iron pipe heated by a heat gun until it was sizzling hot. Lots of sanding! I sealed it with shellac before several coats of Tru-Oil rubbed on with my fingers. I cut the dots from tagua nut.
WOW this is an incredible build! Please give us some details. Besides the mandolin, the case is a work of art. Please fill us in on details!!
