: What is the purfling made of on an upright? I am looking to make an upright...but that is one of the only details I can think of.

: The traditional material is wood, which must be bent on a hot pipe to form the tighter bends. There is also plastic purfling available. On inexpensive plywood basses, the purfling is sometimes painted on, and serves no structural purpose.
