Now that they are bent it is time to fit them and attach to the soundboard. The Sycamore sides are on and lookin good.
And this is how it is done. First you trim the ends to fit, The sides are always made extra long and must be trimmed off.
Ah!, This one is going to fit just right
Once both sides are fitted, the bottom ends are taped together and glue is applied to the bottom edge of both sides, and to the foot block.
And the sides are clamped tightly into position. This is looking just right,
I like to get some of the tentalones in place at this stage, then the sides are well anchored. I will finish the tentalones tomorrow.
