Grand Concert No. 22 Build Gallery, Part Four Freshly cut purfling and binding ledges. I use tape to hold the binding in place and wrap the body in cotton twill tape to clamp everything up tight. A sharp scraper is the tool of choice for cleaning up bindings. This dark binding used with violin purfling is crisp and elegant. Here are the parts of my new floating tenon adjustable neck joint ready to assemble. The tenon is glued to the neck and then bolted to the body.
