View Full Version : OM drawings and plans now available

Sep-17-2004, 3:04am
Thanks to the combined efforts and hard work of my good friend, Jack Manhard and myself, I have my Octave Mandolin plans available as well as a set of the 21 page illustrated instructions to go along with the drawings. I felt this would be beneficial to the "from the tree" builders who want to have a go at it from scratch. I have these listed in the classified section and it is add 10992. I will be available, as I always am, for consultation and help just as I am with my kits.
I will also donate $1 to the Plucked String Foundation for every set of plans sold so check it out. These are the drawings / Instructions to the OM kit that I have but without the wood. The standard mandolin plans will be out in October.

Link didn't work Don, not sure why. What's the scale length? John

The link works now. John

Sometimes the link works and sometimes it doesn't.

The plans come with a 22.875" scale length but there is enough flexibilituy in the design that you could take off the first two frets and have a scale of 20.179.
