    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    Hey everybody, it's been a while. I kind of put a hold on this project and I don't plan to get back to it until I have the stuff I need to do a good job. In the meantime, I will continue watching...

    Just rewatched that, and I think my computer skipped part of the video, because that was just amazing. I can't believe he shapes it like clay!

    Using a plane, or what? I feel like a plane would still take a long time.

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    I am working on my mandolin. I am literally chiseling away at a thick piece of wood for hours each weekend while my parents tell me to stop. I don't understand why you all are repeatedly saying I am...

    Also, I am done with my search for wood at this point, but I was a bit surprised when I went to Lowes, and I repeatedly tapped on different pieces of poplar and pine. And the poplar ringed like a...

    I am in Physics 101 right now and we're learning about the physics of waves, and part of the unit is sound waves, and I think I can gauge the velocity and frequencies of waves well, so that might...

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    Hey everybody, I am a little curious about what would happen if I made a small body mandolin (kinda like a piccolo mandolin), but wound mandocello strings on it. Would it sound good? Is it even...

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    I'll try to post a picture if I remember to, but heads up, it looks absolutely atrocious at this point. It is hard to flatten wood from 1.75 inches to .15" with a hammer and some chisels. But I am...

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    I am slowly but surely flattening out the piece of poplar. It might go to waste if I do the cutting board idea, but there's no such thing as too much practice, right?

    I have thought about it, but it just doesn't feel like enough. I am happy to deal with frustrations, when it is something I care about. I have no problem dealing with them. Like I said before, I...

    I like the idea of the bamboo. I know bamboo is a grass, but acoustically, would it work like a hardwood or a softwood?

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    When I say penetrate, I mean the ability for it to transfer vibrations throughout the insides. That makes more sense, though. Thanks for clearing it up.

    All this time, I've heard that laminate instruments sound worse, but why is it bookmatching doesn't affect sound? Is it because side by side is OK, vs. layered on top? That would make sense to me...

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    My parents gave me an idea... Buy a cutting board that's fairly thin. Cutting boards also tend to be quarter sawn hardwoods, so it would be perfect. Opinions?

    Re: No Power Tool Mandolin

    Sawed out my back, need to figure out a way to flatten it out. It's an inch thick right now. To help that, my vise broke too, so I can't even saw it thinner safely. I'll try to find access to a...
