CNC Carving Service

You provide the wood, I'll carve it for you.  No need to join the wood yourself, I'll take care of that, then CNC carve it to perfection.  A great way to save countless hours of work and ensure your instrument sounds spectacular.

F-5 Mandolin Top or Back, CNC Carving
CNC carve your wood inside and outside.  Tops are left .030" thicker than standard Loar specs backs are .020" over.  This is enough extra wood for a novice luthier to sand, scrape, call it done and glue to the rim, or for an experienced builder to make fine adjustments to the graduations.  The outline, arching and graduations were developed after studying and drawing 10 Loar Mandolins.

Save time and frustration by having perfect f-holes cut in your top.

H-5 Mandola Top or Back, CNC Carving
CNC carve your wood, inside and outside.  Tops are left .030" thicker than standard Loar specs backs are .020" over.  This is enough extra wood for a novice luthier to sand, scrape, call it done and glue to the rim, or for an experienced builder to make fine adjustments to the graduations.

The outline, arching and graduations were developed after studying and drawing one of the few Loar Mandolas in existence.  The instrument pictured has an extended scale and larger f-holes.
