Paeones - Peones - Never sure how to spell them - but I do like them. An ancient simple form of joint !
I make my own - The last three instruments have been cypress as I have a lot spare - and cypress linings and blocks smell good.
I keep all the ones from one length of strip together ( I stick them in little bags ) then lay them as a set. I make a new set for each guitar - as the strips sort of vary on my mood at the time ( tall and thin, short and fat ?)
If you saw them by hand on a small fence/block with a stop its quite quick. Mount them when cutting so the glued face is away from you and upwards - on a pull saw. This leaves the glued edges clean. I can't resist cleaning up the outer faces a bit - just a quick de-snot - which is a bit tedious !
Their shape needs some thought - as not being clamped they can be quite triangular - which is maybe best shape for a lining. When things are being clamped one has to stay mainly flat. I usually mark a pencil line along the strip before cutting, either at the base, top etc - different for each length. I then know I have the 90 deg corner inside - and the sets do not get mixed up !
Before sawing them up - I take a small chamfer off that inner 90 deg corner. so they sit better. I glue them with hide glue.
In Madrid and some other parts we call them ''Zoquetillos'', anyway, I'll share soon a little kind of dictionary about how we call the different guitar parts and works in Spain, for example, in Madrid we say Cenefas, in Granada they sey Junquillos, and in other countries you say Bindings, in Madrid we say Refuerzo Picado, in Granada Diente de Perro, and in other countries kerfred lining, and so
