I know I’m late to the conversation. I have never built from raw materials, albeit that is my life goal, I’ve done plenty of repairs on Mandolins. Enough that besides carving out a scroll, I’ve just about built a few from raw materials. Anyways, I have a pretty expansive digital library that covers all things luthrie. I’d be happy to upload it to a trusted hosting site so you guys could have access to it as well. I’ll try and remember to check back in the upcoming days. However, I believe I made this account several months ago and this is my first time actually exploring the site.
