The Mandolin Project

£39.99

Product description

Spiral bound paperback book with beige covers and black titles. There is a small tear to the upper edge of the back cover at the spine. On the front cover there is a mark where a sticker has been removed. The front lower corner is bumped. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. The lower corners of some of the pages are bent.
Suited for first-time builders with limited woodworking skills as well as those looking for a challenge, this workshop manual features four mandolin projects that range from a simple flat top and back model to the more complex, fully carved A" style mandolin. The accompanying narrative offers step-by-step instruction in a relaxed, conversational style that not only explains what and how something should be done but also why it's executed in that particular manner. A set of full-size, detailed plans pairs with photographs, diagrams, and illustrations to round out the instruction materials. The manual's informative introductory section featuring a comprehensive history of the mandolin, construction techniques through the ages, and color illustrations of rare instruments-some of which have never been previously published-enhances the appreciation of this ancient string instrument.
