Purfling on a violin is typically a strip, black-white-black, which is just inside the edges of the top and back. It's made of three pieces, black, white, black, which are glued together.
First one has to cut the grooves for the purfling.
And then the purfling is bent, cut and glued into place.
On the upper left of this photo, you can see some of the cut-offs of the purfling strips. The glue will dry for a day, then I can continue cutting the outside arching for both of these plates.
