Holding The Work

Holding the job hands free is always a goal. I can work the bindings in the horizontal or vertical positions. Foam pads and string / screw hold the body. A solid bottom prevents the body from being crushed in the tail vise.

Cheers fellas, thanks for looking and commenting.

Xquiet, This is my second flat top, a Martin OM. The first was a Martin OOO. In many ways I have found carve tops easier to build.

The timbers will be the same Redwood, Silky Oak, Mahogany and Solomon Blackwood. I’m going white-black-white binding and purfling on this one.
