Default Side Strips

In this sequence, Larry glues up the side strips. The are made from the offcuts of the back and/or sides. They help prevent grain line cracks, and if a crack should occur, they prevent it from traveling the length of the side.

The inner mold is removed.

The "unstripped" sides and the strip stock.

The side strips being dry fit.

Now they are glued and clamped.

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
