    Re: Applying stain

    I use old t-shirts. Fresh out of the laundry and cut into pieces. Same for varnish, whenever I'm not spraying.

    Thanks,

    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    Just finished an Appalachian dulcimer for my wife. Took me a lot longer than expected, but that's the usual, I guess.

    Re: Octave mando 4 or 5 courses?

    This has been my favorite mandolin since I built it. GDAEB.

  5. Re: Looking for thoughts and opinions about a bowl back mandolin

    I have some doubts about that mandolin. The way the tuners are way off center, to the point where they look like they overlap the edge on one side, is a major warning to me. If they allow that kind...
  6. Re: 4 string or 8 string that's the question....

    If you go for a popular vote, I think you'll find that the most common response will be double courses for acoustic and single for electric. I prefer single courses in either, but single courses in...

    Re: Mandolin 8 string or 4 string

    My last four or five or so acoustic mandolins have been four-stringers. I have hardly touched my eight-stringers since I built the first four. I use the same strings on them as I did on eights, but I...

    It's a bargain, actually. It's not a luthier project. It's TWO luthier projects!

    Re: Mandolin 'dogs'?

    My #2. Sounded like a rubbermaid tub with strings.

    Re: Recurve too thin?

    Should be fine. My #1 was at .08 most of the way around on the recurve. It's still around almost 20 years later.

    Re: Mandolin from a kit

    Interesting. It looks, based on the size of the tail piece, to be very small. What's the scale length?

    For an easy-to-apply finish, I would suggest tru-oil. It's forgiving, easy to work with,...

    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    Just finished my first ukulele, this tenor. GOSH, but it's a lot quicker to build a flat top flat back than a carved one.

    The first of two tenor ukuleles I'm making for myself. This one is somewhat pedestrian walnut, but the second one has some lovely birdseye.

    Re: Binding router

    I did a search and didn't find much, which surprised me. Did it again now, and as you say, there's lots. Must have had a typo in my query.

    Binding router

    I have stayed away from binding up until now, just going for a rounded edge, but I'm currently in the middle of some ukuleles that seem to be calling for wood binding. I purchased the StewMac Dremel...
