    That looks great Nick! I like your rosette and plan to add one like that to my project. Do you mind describing how you put the rosette together (material sourcing, etc.)?

    Lovely work, Nick. The bracing on the pancake is interesting too, and I like your bolt-on neck joint.

    This is one of my earlier mandolins that I took back in on trade. It had not been humidified or cared for at all really. I replaced the back and changed from Ivoroid/black/ivoroid binding to Black/ivoroid. Totally stripped to bare wood and re-stained. It's got several more days of spraying to go, but I'm pleased with the overall look.

    David, I don't know what that mandolin looked like before but, it looks awesome now! I love the dark burst!

    It's French Polishing week on the bench. Here are three turn of the century instruments; a white crown label Washburn 111 that I X braced, a Washburn 2422 double point mandolin and an American Conservatory Mandoletto.

    Hi Jim

    The rosette came from Siminoff. I found a web page which shows how to make your own. I will see if I can provide the web link.

    Still fairly new to the forum. I'm Rick Weaver founder and builder of Ham Jones Guitars, Hence Rick Is Ham.. On my third Mandolin, this one from re-purposed Juniper. Ready for buffing and hardware. I previously built the guitar from the same wood.
