Sapeli wood set for lute bowl
It includes ribs, end clasp and wood strips.
Greek lute bowls are made with four extra wood strips. Two of the strips extend from the end of the clasp to the neck joint. The other two strips are glued on the outside of the bowl. The additional strips increase the thickness at the edge of the lute's back, making the instrument bowl stronger.
