I'm still in business

Just a quick post to say that the octave mandola is still moving along, I simply haven't had time to write any updates (well, I was probably too lazy). I have added some binding to the top, and cut the 'groove' for the binding on the back. I have also made the fretboard, but I won't fit this until all the binding is finished. Finally I've been to Halfords and bought some stainless steel brake cable. I'm going to use this to attach the tailpiece, 'cello-style - I have no idea if this will work!

Time is ticking on now, and I really need to get started on the guitar in August, as it will be one year from my older son's 21st birthday, and he might end up with no present...
