Campanella Strings

I make violins and mandolins by hand. When I'm not working on instruments, I play them, draw them, and write about them. Here are some of my recent works and work in progress. Enjoy! Joe C.

a good day...



...is a productive one.
I inlaid the carbon fiber reinforcement to the neck and added headstock "wings".
Joined the back. Bent ribs and glued linings.
And...I cleaned off my workbench.

I think what you are doing is great. I saw one of your mandolins at the Mandolin Symposium and thought very highly of it. I am a big fan of Vermont. I look forward to seeing the progress of the mandolin.

Joe,

I just began opening your sites; I am so pleased and happy with it, I don't have words to express it except to say it is a wonderful blessing from God, and you are cooperating with it!
