Celtic Mandolin #8: Thought I was done but….


This is part 8 in a 13 part series: Celtic Mandolin

Thought I was done with the top surface, but I checked my references and discovered I forgot something. There’s a narrow recessed area on the outer surface called the recurve. It’s more pronounced than I thought and requires a little more carving.

So I set the quill-stop accordingly and drilled some holes about an inch from the outer edge.

I carved out as much as possible with the round bottom plane but couldn’t get deep enough.

So I’ll wait until my new gouge set arrives from Ukraine.
