Onward! The tail block gets glued in place. There's a spacer between the block and the solera brackets that's the same thickness as the sides to keep the spacing correct.

The sides were glued to the top and wedged and glued in place at the neck block.

Tentellones and linings were glued in place.

The linings were cut to take the back bars. Side braces were added and were let into the tentellones and linings for better protection from cracks.

Back at it.

Braces were added to support the back harmonic bars, then the back was glued to the sides. Plexiglas helps even out the clamping forces.

A simple maple backstrip was inlaid into the back in keeping with the simple details of SE114. Here, the theme is carried over to the end graft.

To the left of the heel, the EIR/maple binding is on. To the right, everything is ready for the binding to go on.

Fretboard goes on.

Final shaping of the neck is in progress.

New meets old, using a laser to eyeball the neck profile. A profile template was used for fine tuning

Finish prep and finish follow shortly!

edit: P.S. What a mixup!! Not at all what I posted. I'll have to come back and clean it up when I have some time.

edit: P.P.S. Removed images and replaced them. The file names had spaces in them; it appears that doesn't work too well.
