Binding Part III
Cutting the first block into slices of
thickness at an angle of 33 degrees
The slices are glued successively onto veneer, trued, glued topsyturvy and planed to thickness.
For the binding of the "F" holes, I plane the strips to 1.3 mm and cut them according to the width and length of each lamination mold.

Sawing the "F" hole on the bass side
Cleaning up the sawcut with a razor-sharp cutting-knife
Now follows the fitting of the binding framing the "F" hole (thus "Framework").
completed "F" hole
To increase the gluing surface between the sides and back resp. top, the linings are installed. I use unkerfed willow linings of 3.5 mm thickness.
The sides are cleaned on the inside, the back can be glued in position.
