You Tube :  First Mandolin Build - Brian George
 
I built this mandolin with basic workshop hand tools.
It involved a lot of problem solving and improvisation.
As it was the first and possibly the only instrument that I would build, I bought good quality woods and the result was a very bright sounding mandolin.
 
I was hooked and was destined to buy more equipment as I refined my art.
