Eddie Blevins Mandolin Works - Handcrafted Acoustical Instruments
Why do I build mandolins?

I have been in love with the mandolin for a long time. I have owned several different ones thru the years, never dreaming that one day I would make the leap into building my own line of custom instruments that would bear my name.

I build all of my instruments by hand, in my one-man shop.  Starting with some of the finest quality tonewoods available, each piece is painstakingly cut, glued, carved, filed and sanded until it emerges in the end as a finely crafted instrument. 

I put a lot of myself into of my mandolins and it is hard to let go of them.  Why do I build mandolins?  I guess the real questions is 'why didn't I start sooner?'
