Braces and linings..
Here's a couple of pictures explaining the relationship between braces (or tonebars) and linings, the first thing you'll probably notice is that my linings are solid, not the kerfed type with the multiple cuts in them to allow flexibility, I always have offcuts of the ukulele wood and prefer to bend these.. More re-cycling!
So you can see the recess cut in the lining ready to accept the end of the brace, this firms the whole thing up.
