I have a Yellowstone Jewelry Dobson style tailpiece coming for my 1890s vintage Buckbee. These photos are from Yellowstone's web site. Is this the best way to attach the strings? I was thinking that tying stopper knots on the ends and feeding them through the holes would be good, but I don't know. If so, is there are recommended knot to use? I'll be using Labella 17s.
Thanks,
Steve

As stated, stopper knots would be correct for that pattern.

Thanks for your insight. Stopper knots seem like the right way to go. Thanks

I got the labella 17s installed on the old Buckbee using Ashley stopper knots. They worked like a champ. Thanks everyone ?
