    Good work, Lappy, and nice to see you back at the Cafe. Hope everything's going well. Any tunes for us?

    I started these in July 2020, they take as long as they take I’m not on a schedule, I work for myself, by myself. I assume these will be finished up around August or September. My customers are thankfully very patient.

    Nah, I'll just aspire to make fewer mistakes and fix the rare ones I make.

    Wetting to raise the grain on a two-point. This is going to look good.

    Due to COVID pandemic circumstances, I've been set up in our apartment on one bench working at like 1/10th speed with my studio packed up in storage awaiting a major move several states away. Here's the first of some new mandolin and octave mandolin models that have been on the back burner for years. Feels good to get these going.

    Here is a book match for a top. Might have a challenge with the end being ripped out, and maybe not I’lll just make it to neck side instead of the end of the instrument. The colors made me think I mixed up a couple wedges but the saw marks line up correctly. Funny how things can color change.Click image for larger version.

    I got great string tension. The cast and structure is holding up well.
