Gluing in the Corner Blocks

May 13, 2014
Today at Elmer's Woodshop I finished cutting the blocks to dimension (31.5mm x 25mm x 28mm, etc.) with an engineers square and sanding tools, adjusting the mold to the fit the blocks, and glueing the blocks in place with hide glue and clamps. The next step will be to carve the actual violin corners with a corner gouge specific for the job, then bend the side ribs and glue them to the corner blocks.
