I was waiting for glue to dry on my boxes for a Blue Grass Festival and thought of making these for as well. The wood is Big Leaf Maple that Dennis Hunter and I got from a guy who had it in a storage container for 15 years. The wood is about 1 1/2” thick. The fiddle body is 12” x 11” plus a 7” handle., Kind of squished looking for more cutting surface. the Mandolin is 13” x 12” with a 7” handle. I routed an edge on each one. I have included pictures of each side because the wood is really pretty. Lots of mineral oil and later some wax.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
