I am in Lockdown, because of this Plague so I got some time on my hands and I thought I'd get some building done. Today is a practice body Build, a pine Flying V. its smaller than a standard Flying V, so If it comes out ok, I'm thinking it will make a good solid CBG build.

Planing was easy, cutting not so much, but clamping the 2 halves has been a major pain. Don't think it will come out the greatest, but I got time do more and get it right. might just use this as a template for future attempts.

I can't put my pics up at the moment, but will do soon. What you guys think?

Hi JP,

Sounds like a good use of your time.

I look forward to seeing the photos.

Regards,

David L.

I have pics, the gluing did not go very well, but this is was a practice and I got better ways of building this.

I got at least another 12 weeks, I'll run out of wood, before I run out of projects.

Hi, here is a similar project from some years ago, a flying V mandolin. I find it far easier to join the timber prior to cutting the shape.

That Mando is sick Taff!!

I like the mando-V Taff. Is that body hollow? I'm thinking of doing a Hollow V once I work out the solid one.

nice... that workmate you have i recognise the top same as mine..

but again tha second pic with the clamps is not fully loading..

Hi JP, it's a solid body. All that stuff on the top would not leave much of an area left suitable for acoustic response from the top. If I wanted decent acoustic sound I would need nothing on a top of that size and shape.
