    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.

    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.

    Two things on my bench this week. Prototype for the new Haywood Travel Mandolin starting to come together. Plus, an old harmonium getting new reeds and air leak repair. Talk about tedious!

    Trying to flatten a 25 year old slab of post oak with a scrub plane and a jack plane, for a workbench top.

    Sawyer didn't want to risk his blade on flattening this for me due to blue stain, which indicates metal in there somewhere. So far I haven't hit it . . .

    Thanks, and thanks for asking. . .

    The colors on these mandos were all sprayed using TransTint liquid stains dissolved in 1# superblonde shellac. The darker colors take a few coats, but there's not much thickness to it.

    Thanks. I'm planning on a black top for one of my octave mandolins and may give that a try!

    Stepping back in the process a bit on the above batch of mandos, but couldn't help sharing the moment this Tasmanian Blackwood pops when the first coat of sealer hits it (not to mention the first Walnut back becoming incredibly deep).
