Blog #6: Hello all! A beautiful Spring day here in upstate! The trees in our back orchard are in bloom-a beautiful sight! Today I am working on the fingerboard (9" radius down to 12" on the end). I'm also still finishing up on the steer horn binding-seems to be the most time-consuming part, but it is worth it! I have also been working on the marker dots and installing them into the fingerboard. This mandolin is all made entirely in my shop, not relying on any pre-made supplies minus the Waverly tuners, Allen tailpiece and Stew Mac frets. I am still working on the finish-work on a couple repairs..here a little..there a little. They are coming along nicely!
Until next time,
