I finished up everything today on the mandolin, the frets, the nut , the bridge, buffed one more time and I waited... and waited. But no strings today :( It is my own fault, I should have remembered to order them earlier. Well, if they come tomorrow I will be ready and then we will put it up for sale. A few people have already shown some interest so I will mail them first.
The rest of the day I worked on the SRB and the new mandolin, the bodies are now glued together and the necks got the back veneer on the head. So tomorrow I will route out the new small square headshape for the SRB, I am looking forward to see if it works out as I have thought.

Here are some picture from todays work. I really hope I can finish up the mandolin tomorrow.
See you then / Michael
