Closing up the box

With the plates done, it's time to put the box together. First thing to do is knock the ribs free of the form. It is shown here, as it was at the end of the June workshop.


By splitting out the blocks, and some finagling with the ribs, you can get it free.


The next step is to glue it to the back.


After the glue has set-up, the assembly can be taken out of the clamps. The blocks are trimmed to their final state, and if you're going to add a label, now is a good time to do it.


With that done, the top is glued in place.


Now it's time to work on the neck, pegbox, and scroll. Starting to look like a fiddle.
