Hi luv, I've got aged willow rib linings. And they are no way rubbish And can be soaked and do not split. Very old British willow. Dense. I can tell you how to clamp them and how to make the clamps. Honestly, making the clamps is better than clothes pegs.

If inserting into c bout corner blocks, just a bit of a pain, cos you have to get them made first.

Easy job, once learnt on a cross quarter piece of corner block. In En gg land made from right grain willow wood too.

Saltwd boiled water to soak the rib linings, a router drill bit on a drill, or be posh and buy junk like a sremel and spend a year or years working out how to attach bits to it. Bloody nighmare, best use a regular old hand drill attached 45 degrees to a workmate bench.

Anyway, a fine saw will do insertion easiest. Just be careful of over edging within the rib oe you will have a Strad built piece of junk lil! Pm me hunny. X
