Now the sides are firmly attached with tentalones to the bottom of the soundboard. It is time to glue tentalones on the bottom side of the instrument that we will attach the back to. But first the dimensions of the side must be carefully determined and established.
After careful measuring a flexible plastic ruler is clamped to the sides and a pencil line is drawn.
'Then this tiny plane is used to trim the side down to the pencil line.
Once that is done I will glue tentalones all around the edge so that there will be a good surface to glue the back to. That will happen tomorrow.
