Harry Lane's over-the-top satinwood mandolin

Posted by Plfmud on Wednesday, September 9, 2020

I used to visit Harry Lane quite a bit back in the '90s.  I have a couple of his banjos, some of his furniture and other items he made over the years.  He and Randy Wood, who also lived in Savannah, had a good-natured competition going to build the fanciest instrument.  After Harry arrived back in the US with a container-load of satinwood, he gave Randy some.  Randy built a beautiful mandolin with some of it, which you can view on his website.  Harry, not to allow a challenge to go unanswered, built this over-the-top instrument.  He allowed me to take it home to have it professionally photographed.  This is the result. The photographer will remain nameless since I was less than satisfied with the pictures, but they're all we have.  Harry had no interest in selling the instrument and I have no idea what happened to it.  Someone please tell me how to post photos here and I'll put them up.

Go to your home page. Click on Media, under Newest Photos click on add photo then click on upload photos and follow easy instructions to upload to your home page. Note: photos need to be on your computer/tablet/phone to upload.

Then, if you want to add photos to a thread on a forum, scroll to the bottom of the page and your photos should be there under add attachments. Click on appropriate photo to attach it, click on preview to be sure it's on your thread. You can add more photos the same way and when you have them all on your thread, click on post comment.

Welcome to the Hangout. Hope I helped you to upload photos.

Thank you very much for your instructions. I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong because I can't get it to work. I tried with your instructions and then I tried to drag and drop the pictures but nothing works so far.
