      Great kit building video from Craig Marble at CKMWorks

      This video is the mandola kit but the build process is basically the same.

      Dakota Mandolin Kit
      I purchased this kit to build for a friend. I found it pretty easy; just time consuming. I liked the "tips" in the instructions. I have built guitars before, but never built a mandolin. It sounds excellent, and stays in tune. I did add some walnut binding on the body and used abalone fret dots on the neck and side of the neck. I am likely to buy another kit for myself.
