    Thinking mandolin. Using Siminoff's book and Loar plans from American Lutherie I'd like to build a mando with a slightly wider neck.

    Took a old Doug Fir board yesterday and got enough pieces to make an outside mold. Just ran these through the planer....

    Once I get the templates cut out, I'll cut out the inside of this two piece mold-to-be.

    Too cold in the basement now to glue the mando top. May have to make an insulated box and use a heater to get the temp up towards 90 degrees.

    Can't upload pics for some reason. Keep getting a message that a "security token" is missing. Any ideas?

    Thinline body. Just needs neck bolt holes drilled, Neck pocket, and Jack cup hole drilled and then a quick sanding before that is off to a new owner.

    Mom's Christmas present. A mantle style 4 drawer coat hanger made from my Ash stock (for thinlines)

    A chord concealing box to hide the nest of cables, power strips, and chords under my tv.

    A giant pile of customer/personal amps that have been returned becuase of bad tubes by "JJ". This is starting to get frustrating.

    Sawmilling some of this stuff into useful blanks. 4/4 walnut and cherry. 3 figured cherry crotch slices big enough for 1pc. tops and about 60 bd/ft of 4/4 walnut, most pieces 10ft. long. The short pieces stacked on top were not included in the 60bd/ft, those were a freebee.

    Walnut/pine body about to get top binding & tru-oil.

    [​IMG]]

    This one needs the binding gaps filled with acetone & final sanding & finish:

    A Korina top/Wenge/African Mahogany back laminated body is also the works.

    I didn't. I bought a few of 'em on eBay about 10 years ago. I am, however, going to put a Peavey Super Ferrite pickup in there, so I'm breaking out the patience and a coping saw. And a few files. And some sandpaper...:D
