Step 2: Shaping the Body - A
Step 3: Shaping the Body - B
Step 4: Slats A
Step 5: Slats B
-To bend the slats i sprayed them with hot water first (just a few), then i draw their shape on desktop to use it as a guide for bending. Fix them while bending, using clamps. (bend them slowly giving some time to the wood to stretch, to avoid cracking) .
Step 6: The Cap
-To join the two pieces you first need to flatten the surfaces that are going to be glued. The easiest way is to put a sand paper down on a flat surface and trim the Cap holding it vertically. To be sure about this use a guide.
-I have add two pics in the end (from http://bouzoukimaker.blogspot.com), that were missing from my construction. A diy table to fasten the two parts of the Cap (prevents them from bending upwards when you will press-glue them together.
Step 7: Gluing the Beams of the Top
Their length of each beam depends on the position the will take on the Top. The exact position of those beams will affect the sound a lot.
