January instruments

I started off the year with a couple of unusual (for me) custom jobs.  The first was a mandolin made from maple lumber salvaged from an old gym floor which had sentimental significance.  It was supplied unfinished. This was my first time working with Adirondack spruce, and my first time installing a pickguard and binding on a mandolin.

The other custom job for January was my first left handed fiddle, and also my first chicken head fiddle made from walnut.

Banjos 101 through 104 were all in-stock instruments and are shown on the Banjos page. I also made a curly maple dulcimer which is on the Dulcimers page, which is under the Other Instruments page.
