The Mandolin Manual is a detailed guide to constructing instruments belonging to the mandolin family: the mandolin, tenor mandola, and octave mandola. Logically structured and clearly written, it introduces the art of these beautiful instruments, describes the various techniques of the craft, and explains the science of their unique sound. The book includes detailed instructions explaining the techniques for making a mandolin; chapters on the nature of wood, adhesives, and other materials for those new to woodworking; sections on the acoustics and dynamics of the bridge, belly, and sound box, as well as string technology, tone theory, optimum performance, and playability; an overview of the origins of mandolins; and grid-scale plans for all the instruments’ templates and critical dimensions.
