"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts, In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.
Joel Nowland of Nowland guitars designed these deceptively simple clamps are absolutely perfect for quickly and easily clamping the kerfing to the sides. Made of attractive hardwoods, each clamp provides the perfect amount of pressure to the kerfing. Clamp too tight and the joint will be "starved", too weak and the joint is weak. These clamps are designed to offer two points of nearly equal pressure onto the kerfing (the typical "clothes pin clamps" provide only one point of pressure, causing the pressure on the kerfing to be lopsided) and work well with any of our kerfing, including the hard to clamp triangular kerfing (see photo). Sold in a bag of 10. Typically you need one clamp for every inch of kerfing.
