Video: Gluing a Martin D-35 back brace

This issue of Trade Secrets is a video: Dan Erlewine glues a Martin back brace, using Scissor Jacks along with tools you can make in your own shop. After this video, we developed the Brace Gluing Wedge to simplify this job and reduce the number of tools needed.

Perfectly cut

(Customer's Reviews)

The brace wood I received was of a very high quality. Really very pleased. Seriously considering using this wood on a regular basis.


Western red cedar

(Customer's Reviews)

Lightweight, stiff, resonant and really easy to carve.



(Customer's Reviews)

Was hoping it would be a little reddish in appearance, to match older Martins, but the piece I got is very white. Still nice quality wood.
