I built 3 more mandolins during the winter 2002/2003 , big project for me , as it requires about 150 hours of work to make one mandolin .
I'm not a professionnal luthier, so the 450 hours needed were taken on the period (   TV information , uninteresting publicity , reality show .... etc ...)
I have  no really good pictures , because I had no good camera then  .

These 3 mandolins are  named , Caroline , Virginie and Maggie

and " pieces of wood " . from left to right , 2 backs , 3 necks and the rims .
