Mandocello K-Style build progress

Rate this Entry
For a very long time I have been wanting to build a Mandocello, and I wanted to make a Florentine Style one but with apertures instead of K-4 with soundhole style.


Over the years I've gathered information as for original dimentions of the K4 and research pro and cons. I have to be honest.. I've read a lot of treads right here on Mandolin Café (if not all). I then started on my first drawings draft and re-tweeked them quite a few times whenever changing my mind about, for exemple, scale length..

My build is well underway, At this point in time I have the rim all glued up and i'm almost done carving the Torrefied Sitka Spruce top.
