Setting Purfling

Remove purfling from bottom. Restrain body in form or template.

Apply thin hide glue with eye dropper to "C" bouts, but not into corners.

Insert "C" bout purfling, well into corners. Tap into place.

Apply glue to ends, insert purfling. Ensure that ends match nicely. Start with ends, work toward middle. Tap into place.

** Make sure glue doesn't get onto instrument body, wipe off excess with damp cloth.

Repeat on front.
