    I like the Dearstone influence there... don't feel bad about it -- my boys are still waiting for their nylon string mandos I was building them for Christmas 2011!

    Feels good to be able to build an instrument without having to build all the fixtures, eh?

    Here's an octave I'm working on, headed for Italy. It's evolved into a bit of a homage to John Monteleone.

    Now that I have built some Nautilus mandolins that sound good, and some that look good (not always the same instrument), I need to make sure they will all look good and sound good. I spent the last two weeks rethinking my fixtures. Now my back and top plates can be made on the same fixture, and I can rough out up to four at a time. Final finish passes are done individually, and I adjust the tool paths for each part depending on its properties. Final voicing is done by hand.
    Bubinga, Khaya mahogany, and curly maple.

    I just stained and sealed this quilted maple. I'll be applying finish tomorrow. Not having worked too much with quilted bigleaf, I was amazed how easily it was to hand rub stain. I really like the wide grain of the sitka top too.
