Ahhhh...that is the inner mold which supports the bent sides until the top is on.

Most luthiers use outside molds. I think Larry uses the inner mold for simplicity and it allows him to make sure the sides are relaxed.

Like the castle in its corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
