Violin rib assembly, part 2


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.
