This is when it begins to really get exciting. Did you reinforce the top x-bracing with glued gauze at all, or leave it au natural?

Very cool, my friend!

Mack: The X-Bracing was au natural – no gauze. Should be plenty strong.

Rikkor: No not yet. That’s trying to put out a candle via the sound hole by thumping the top, right?
