    Re: Strap for Weber Gallatin

    Here is what I do. The photo is not a Gallatin but the construction is very similar - elevated fretboard being the most important similarity. Pickguard or not doesn't matter.

    Re: Average Cost to Ship Mandolin in CONUS?

    Good stuff in this thread. I'll just add my observation that shipping cost for a mandolin is almost always dependent on the size of the box, not the weight. Thus if you find an old dreadnaught guitar...

    Re: Tune from The Mandolin Store Site

    That video proves the old adage that even a flyaway pinkie can be trained to go where it is needed when it is needed. And if it's not an old adage, maybe it ought to be.

    Re: chisels

    I am a whittler, not a luthier. So, FWIW:
    I bought a set of Wood River hand chisels about two years ago. I have used the 1/4" chisel a lot and the 1/2" chisel some. I haven't even sharpened the 3/4"...
