Linings were added to the top and bottom portions of the sides. These linings increase the surface area for gluing the tops and bottom on to the uke. The kit came with a set of thin basswood linings as shown on the left while I made more traditional "guitar style" linings for the 002 uke on the right. We'll see which work out better on the final product. I made a modification to the plans for the building jig by substituting a set of 1/2 inch dowels for the metal angle brackets. This is much gentler on the side wood.
