    I did a campfire kit in 4 days and an F-5 Stewmac kit in only 7 months. A month each on the top and the back. I may be old, but I'm slow.

    Re: Mandolins in progress

    That's just beautiful, Skip. Thanks for your encouragement, makes me want to keep at it. My #2 was much better than #1. When I get to #32 I hope I'm half as good as that.

    Re: Mandolins in progress

    I gave the mandolin to my son today, he was thrilled but not as thrilled as I was. It sounded great, the kid can pick a little.

    I can still cut them down more. I went by the book 7/16" on the bass side and 3/8" on the treble side. How much more, I've got knives, planes and sandpaper.
