    Well I decided I needed an extension piece on my bending iron, so bought some aluminium bar, drilled and tapped a hole in the iron top( after carefully checking where the heating cartridges were). Drilled out the new bar and bought a suitable bolt. Cost about £5 and works a treat. Takes a little longer to heat up, but hey, I've got all day.

    I forgot to mention, I did this because I am about to start an F5 mandolin build as a new challenge. It has some tight bends around the scroll area.

    Not sure why the image has been rotated!

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    I have a propane torch that I use to heat up the bending, iron it reduces the waiting time for it to heat up..only takes a couple of minutes.

Joined on a Chinese tenor neck with concert scale fretboard to place bridge in a suitable position. Bottom thicknessed to 1.5 mm to become the soundboard with a cedar patch. Top has walnut binding.

    Photo shows size compare with a soprano.

    Pleased to say it's loud and sounds great.

    Nice idea the tenor neck with the concert fretboard. I wonder if I could do the same with concert neck soprano fretboard. Will have to look at some measurements.
    That color really came out nice with a little sanding.

    Love them all Titch!! Need to figure out your bridge on the stick. I'm going to guess it's really quiet? I need something to practice with at the office.
    The turtle and the mando are awesome!

    The stick is actually close to the loudest of the three.

    There is no mando though the Tahitian style is kind of the bastard love child of the mando and the uke
