I've been busy doing more home improvement stuff but have been whittling away at the kerfing here and there. Apart from the A frame braces being too tall for the grooves in the neck block extension the top is nearly ready to get glued on to the rims.

The back is ready to go immediately thereafter.

After that: binding. I'm thinking of going the gramil/chisel route. I HATE power tools.

I think that doing binding ledges with a gramil/chisel might just decrease your dislike of power tools.
