Sure, I had forgotten he does not use molds. I follow all his build threads. I knew about the peone linings as well. I had just not seen a photo of the end blocks glued to the top before. Now as you mentioned no molds, I suppose those end blocks give him an anchor when working with the rims.
PS. I love guitars!
