A Workshop Guide to Building Four Styles of Mandolin
The Mandolin Project details the construction of four mandolins, including
- a flat-top/flat-back,
- a bent-top/flat-back,
- a Celtic carved-top/flat-back and
- a fully carved A style
The book is comprehensively illustrated with photographs, diagrams and plans and includes an extensive chapter on the history of the mandolin.
The original print run has now sold out (June, 2017) and is being reprinted in shorter digital print runs. I do have a few of the original copies left, which are available at a discount price. The original print run was done with 'lay-flat' perfect binding, with full size plans inserted into an envelope in the back of the book. There are also some ring-bound copies available.
The Australian price is A$35 (inc postage within Australia)
