On to some rim assembly. The Osage is strong but bent fairly well into shape. Of course it doesn’t hurt to remind it who’s boss with a lot of clamps.




Jamie is no dummy. You get a big guitar; you make it easier on yourself with an arm bevel. Here is the 7-ply redwood blank I made up fit into place.




But it’s way too big to start with, so I shape it down to a roughly triangular cross-section.




Then I put the rim into our state of the art side profiler and turn it on. Approximately 850kcal later, the sides are ready for the back linings, and I’m ready for a cookie break.




Thanks for following along.
