Building a bowlback mandolin
#6
  
I’ve built a few simple instruments but I’m finally stretching myself and attempting a bowlback mandolin. I have a lot of wood working experience but this looks like a challenge.
I used to take photographs of my projects but for the last few months I’ve been learning how to do video and so I’ve just finished the first video of some prep work that I’ve been doing. I fully expect this to take a while, but I’ll keep this thread updated as I progress, and I gladly invite any advice along the way.
TIA

So here is part 2 of the Bowlback Mandolin project. It only gets more interesting from here!

I hope you will post here when your next video is ready.  I watched the first two.  They are excellent.  I like your ingenuity in jig building.
