Sal's Flamenco - Assembly (hold-down caps for brace ends)

A spanish cedar blank using the side, that it will live with, as perfect sanding surface for the curve on its back.

After further shaping, two pairs of hold-downs for the two full-size cross braces of the top is complete.

They are glued and hand pressed for seven five seconds for the glue to cure. But I left them with cam clamps for another 30 minutes.

Clamps removed. (They are also left tall, to add provide some stiffness to the thin sides.)
