Closing the Boxes

What to do on a snow day.. ??  Make some lutherie progress.. Both the Crossover Guitar and Tenor Uke now are closed up and ready for binding prep work once the clamps come off..

Back on 
And all closed up

This one top first

Closed up as well

Ukulele Side Bender

As I said I was not happy with how the Uke sides bent, So I redid them, but before I did I rebuild my bender to a Fox style.

Works great. Should have done this earlier...

Tops Done

So the Ukulele top and the Guitar top are braced and voiced ready to go on the rims.

I'm bending new Ukulele rims as I was not happy with the original, oh well that's the way it goes sometimes.

Hopefully I can get the boxes closed in the next few days.

The guitar top still needs the cut out removed but I am doing that after it is braced and voiced, not sure if that is the correct approach but that's how I'm doing this one.
