Making terrific progress on this build.
All the tone bars are ready to glue onto the finished tops.
Here is a great way to scoop up glue squeezed out from under the tone bars, A plastic straw cut at an angle so the it has a pointed tip very neatly cleans up the edges.
I got all of the tone bars glued and clamped today. Tomorrow I will add some veneer supporting patches around the sound hole and up the center seam.
The work table is full. The sides are ready to bend, the backs now have their braces glued on. I will be bending sides and carving necks before you know it.
Backs in the Go Bar deck, braces clamped as the glue dries,
