Progress! Managed to get the back on finally. Started by finishing up the back bracing, then adding the center seam.
Notched the sides for the braces. I did these cuts slightly shallow and narrow, then deepened and widened with a dremel and chisel afterwards to get a nice clean fit.
And the back shortly before glue up. Sorry, no pics of the glue up or the finished product yet – these are crappy phone pics, unfortunately my SLR died on me.
That’ll be all for now…..
