I lack the skill and patience to be a builder, so instead of a mandolin I made something to put one on.

Sorry for the fuzzy photos, I've been living on Dr Peppers the last 3 days.

It's no fun being an obessive complusive sometimes.

This is Red Oak, the first two were select Pine. I made four practice scrolls off of scrap to work out some kind of proceedure. Number one was not real good but I learned a lot from it. Number was not half bad but I finished it poorly.

Doug - that looks great! Was it quite a bit harder migrating from the soft pine to the hard oak? Keep up the (improving) great work! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif - Mark

I doubt you'll see these in the classifieds any time soon, way too labor intensive to want to produce a lot of these. I am planning to do another Red Oak and hopefully find some figured Maple to try (Mark the Red Oak was much more forgiving and better to work with). I want to try binding somewhere along the way. The big thing is I learned some new skills and really enjoyed being creative. My O.C.D. consumed me the past three weeks making these things. It took and average of three days to actually complete one of these.
The builders section was VERY helpful in figuring this out. I have an even more great respect for these guys.

I'm not sure if I can make Argyle on Friday yet, but I do want to make the workshops on Saturday.

The guy that got my first stand was happy with it.

Hi Doug:
Received the stand and its awesome. It really looks great. I have my F-4 on it right now.
I noticed your second attempt. it looks great also (darker stain seems to make it look even better) Thanks, also, for the MAS Sticker. I appear to have a chronic case.
Thanks again.

I'm not planning on making a business out of this, just developing some skills and having some fun.
