Sal's Flamenco ~ preparation and gluing of linings to the sides

Solid linings are used for the of top/side and back/side assembly.

They are bent over a hot pipe to the required shape in three laminations for a stiff perimeter.

These cuts on the linings facilitates a continuous lining all around the perimeter. The open 'V' will take the tailblock.

Completed linings...

...waiting to be mated to the sides.

The linings are being glued.

Bamboo pegs. Stiff enough for a perfect gentle clamp.

Clamps removed the next day.

The linings are smoothed sanded and correctly notched to receive the lower and upper traverse bars of the top, before they are glue to the sides.
