Three days of learning and building. We started by making a model template out of aluminum, transfering that to a plywood mold, making and gluing top, bottom, and corner blocks,
thinning the side pieces, bending and gluing the side pieces to the mold,putting linings on the bottom side of the mold.
Then gluing the plates together, tracing the outlines and cutting the plates, and the final step to day was beginning the roughing out of the maple back plate.
I’m ready to sleep tonight 🙂
