    Your drawing is quite well done with the contrasts in light and dark. Here is another I did recently. I have been doing this just about a year, so I still have much to learn.

    Re: Strange Indentation on Side of my Mandolin

    That's what I suspected. That happens a lot, though I've seen it on guitars, mostly. Probably nothing to worry about, just wood movement.
  16. Re: Strange Indentation on Side of my Mandolin

    Is the indentation about the width of the space between the top and back kerfing on the insides of the sides?

    Re: A String Buzz

    The saddle slot angle should also leaned toward the tail piece too.
    The key point is to get the string to vibrate between to crispy points with nothing in between interfering with the strings.

    Re: A String Buzz

    Open A buzzing against 1st fret because slots are just a tad low.

    Open A buzzing in the nut slot because insufficient back angle.
