After carefully measuring to be sure all is even and a bit of sanding on the big sanding disc to make sure they would fit properly glue was applied and the backs clamped on.
After a few hours the clamps are removed and now the edges must be trimmed. time to put the router in play.
backs are purposely made too large, now that overhang must be cut back to be even with the sides.
the Soundboards must also be trimmed, Note the blue tape. The guide of the trim bitt will roll on the tape causing the bitt to not quite hit the sides. The trim is completed by hand sanding off the tiny overhang, just the width of the tape
This is kind of a messy job throwing sawdust all over the place. Clean up takes as long as the trimming.
But the finished result is worth the mess. This wild piece of East Indian is going to live with Cazzie in Spain.
