Greek Bouzouki Construction Blog
This is my Greek Bouzouki Construction Blog. I will be posting pictures and an explanation of how I design and make my instruments. I will also be covering other Greek bouzouki topics related to purchase, proper set up, and playing accessories. Please stop by often, and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Glueing the soundboard halves

Shooting board

Prepare the soundboard halves by aligning the halves as they were when they were cut from the flitch.  Plane the center glue edge on a shooting board and check the seam by holding the edge together in front of a light to make sure the seam is perfect.

Glueing the soundboard

Make a glue board from a piece of plywood.  Place the two halves next to each other on the board, and  trace around them.  Insert screws into the board along each side just inside the line so that the halves will not lie flat when placed next to eachother.  Apply glue to the edge and push the halves down and together and weight the top so they do not spring back up.  When the glue has dried, plane or surface sand the top to the appropriate thickness.
