Sal's Flamenco - Closing the box

The body (or the box) is ready to be box-ed up. It has just been checked for one last time and vacuum cleaned.

The Paulownia back is now being strapped glued to the box. The black rubber strap is taken from the wheel's inner tube of a huge truck , cut into a 2" strap. Simple but really effective hold down!

Here's the side view of the completed strapped box.
