Donald, if that's a phenolic top, you might want to thin it some. ;~)

sides are done and put into the mold(sides do not fit mold exactly) -- top is sized and rosette is installed,
top braces are next to be put in and then top to be attached to sides...

Looks good Don. Do you have a clamp or spreader made up to push the sides out against the mold?
Comment by Bob Webster on July 14, 2009 at 9:37pm
I'll echo Cliff's kudos and comment about the spreader bars. Are the sides flexible enough to get them all the way to the mold in the upper bout?

I wet the sides real good to get them to be where they are Bob, Im not too happy with the sides but its something that I will live with for this build. I have a set of mahog. sides that I am going to try to bend to see what happens. I'm not verry well versed on bending wood and I think if I'm going to make another then I would say that I had better get with it.. meanwhile can you maby give me some hints as to how to do it??
Any help will be appreciated..
cheers--
