Now the “c” ribs are trimmed flush with the blocks, and the upper and lower bout ribs are trimmed to length. I also had to adjust the curve a bit on the upper ribs.
Then I made clamping cauls to fit all the places that will be glued:
The tail block joint slipped a little, so I had to re-do it. It was very easy, thanks to the hide glue. I’m starting to like that stuff…
I’ll let the glue cure overnight, and probably start carving the plates in the meantime.
