Top Job

Here is the mahogany back cleaned up and ready for the top.

Courtesy of Rick Toone (he graciously gave a bottle last time I visited), I am now using Gorilla Glue for most gluing jobs and it works very well.

Maple top under pressure.

And the finished result.

Next up: Swamp Ash back with Wenge top.

Same procedure again. I am planning on rounding the edge on this top rather than using binding, so here are two samples of radii:

2 mm and 4 mm radiuses.

The two bodies waiting for routing of pickup holes and control cavities.
