    Default Not *that* kind of mandolin!

    Many of you here have gotten copies of my free ebook on how to set up a mandolin. This Christmas season I've gotten plenty of requests from people who received a new mandolin under their tree. I just had to pass along this request, which I received this morning:

    "Hi Rob! I received a mandolin slicer for Christmas. It is an Elyx V-blade slicer. I would love to get your ebook if possible! Thanks so much!"

    I've heard of mandolins being mistaken for ukuleles, but this is a whole new level of mistaken identity.

    I hope Santa gifted you well this year, and Happy New Year to everyone!

    With some mandolins before they are setup that is about all they are good for.

    Looking out for a post on the Cafe from Him/Her. Variety is clearly the "slice of life"!

    In order to not embarrass her I snipped her name and email address. I did send her the ebook with a humorous note. 😇
