The birdseye board, which made for three mandolins, allowed for a onepiece back on the F5 and a twopiece on the F4.

A different angle on an oval hole.

Ebony headstock overlays are a departure from the KM-Dawgs.

Another shot of the F5, with its old Hokkaido red spruce top.

Hoping to capture some sense of the oval hole's arch.

I love the "rosette" on that F4. Way cool. Two very nice looking mandos there!

Very nice, Bruce! #Of course, I could be just a tad biased. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif # I'm assuming mine is the third birdseye... it's the same coloring as yours. #I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow.

Thanks, folks, for the kind words. #This was a special project. #Scott Zimmerman remains the man to talk with as to any future possibilities. #Lots of people have asked whether they sound as good as they look. #I guess I'd have to say--better! #They just keep opening up, and they were amazingly alive on arrival.

Hey, Steve P., are you going to show off your birdseye F5 pretty soon? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/coffee.gif #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif

Let's see if this works... It does! Here's some quick photos that I took the other day of my Sumi. Excuse the quality... I'm a much better mando picker than photographer.
