    Hey Tomy, sorry I did not mean to nit pick. You are obviously a talented maker and use methods that get the results you are looking for. Looking forward to the rest of the build.

    I'm really glad this step is now behind me.. I must admit... I was very apprehensive about it! But I'm sure glad I took my time with it because the joint is perfect. check out the process here.. https://youtu.be/Zz7iiWvmM8I

    After shaping the peghead and the neck profile, drilling the holes for the tuners and gluing up the neck joint, The Mandocello really is starting to look like a musical instrument. latest video link: https://youtu.be/v7UVOMdvY5Q

    Nice! Looking forward, will you make the bridge with feet or solid contact across the top?

    Been pretty busy again with the fretboard extender, dovetail filler, done the inlay work and started the fretboard. I am getting extremely fidgety … I can't wait to put the strings on... Guess I will need to wait nonetheless..
