Although I've been really busy outside of the shop, I was able to get a lot of things in motion in here.
First I have made nice progress on another K4 M'Cello... This one with a soundhole rather than F Holes.
I'm really exited about the woods in this build ( African Mahogany Back & sides, Red cedar top, Curly maple fretboard and pegHead). Starting to shape the neck and waiting on the tuners...
I also started a H4 Mandola that will be using the same woods as the current Mandocello build and was happy to have my 5 years old apprentice to help with adding the Kerf last weekend. Currently carving the Red Cedar soundboard, Glue up soon...
The Octave Mandolin body has been sitting on the side for awhile now, Quilted back and sides and Red Cedar top. I have just put the neck blank together and I'm hoping to get the neck joint done soon...
Things are moving...
