I have been working on this second mandolin for awhile now, but have not posted anything. There are a few improvements in techniques and it has gone quicker since many of the jigs and fixtures had already been made. The soundboard on the first mandolin is Western Red Cedar. The second one has a soundboard made of Engelmann Spruce. I plan to use an Ebony fretboard on this newest instrument, whereas the original one is Rosewood.
