#10 takes shape

Made some progress this weekend. Assembling the various parts into a near-guitar is one of the exciting more moments of the build. You might notice a beech dowel which I added on a whim as extra insurance for the stacked heel. I used wedges to secure only the bass side. The treble side insert is glued in a traditional 2mm slot, while the actual side is glued on the block. I am currently trimming the sides to the final taper and depth, followed by gluing the lining and the back braces.
