Bruce builds without the use of molds (in the air). The two blocks are adhered to the top before the rims are bent. The rims are bent without the aid of molds. He also uses individual Spruce peone to create his top linings vs. a continuous kerfed Spanish Cedar or Mahogany linings. Look over a few of his build threads and it will become clear.
