Build a Mandolin in Just Four Days!
Internationally, the mandolin is revered for its simple and elegant construction as well as its unique sound. These little cousins of the guitar have traveled the world, played for kings, queens, emperors, and a president or two. In this unusual course offering you'll learn how to assemble a simple and fully functional flat style mandolin using traditional Spanish techniques. We'll craft quality instruments out of western big leaf maple, walnut, sycamore or cherry. Mahogany will be used for the necks. This class is a great way to enter into the world of stringed instrument craft, as many of the techniques covered are also used in the construction of other instruments such as guitars and violins. You will end class with personalized mandolin that you will be proud to play and share.
(Note some pre-machined parts will be used)
