« Part 5: How to carve an Archtop Soundboard Part 6 of Octave Mandolin series Part 7: Tap Tuning the Soundboard tone bars »

This is the latest video in the build of the Octave Mandolin. In this segment I’m gluing the freshly made soundboard to the quilted Maple rim. Adding the tone bars and cutting out the Apertures.

Tony—You have a real gift for teaching. I like the way you explained about the bass and treble tone bars. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of this build.
