Default Joining Plates/Bending Sides/Neck Blank

I just received a batch of pics from Larry. There are multiple posts below.

Firstly, I went with no center strip on the back. I decided to allow the wood speak for itself.

Next, the top and back plates are being joined in a nail press and set aside to allow the glue to cure. The first two shots (from a previous build) show the nail press prior to the top/back being glued up.

Here are some pics of the back and top braces laid out on the brace stock.
