Sal's Flamenco - Preparing the back for assembly

The spruce brace ends of the Paulownia back is being cut back, by first sawing it down.

The excess ends are cut back with a chisel and clean out nicely so they can be fitted to the body.

All the affected brace ends have been cut back. That leaves notching the linings of the body next, so as to receive the back. Show that on the next post when I get that done.
