Getting ready to remove the form from the ribs, I clip the blocks with a chisel and mallet. This gives me a little more wiggle room.
The rib assembly is flexible yet strong. It only takes a few minutes to get the form out. I clean up the blocks most of the way before glueing the top on.
Hide glue and clamps, we starting to have a box. Always a fun point in the process. I spent some time carving the scroll today as well, and it is sitting in the background between the sharpening stone and the caliper.
Now a glass of wine is in order.
