Question- It looks like you glued the frame separately. How do you glue the board inside? Would it be easier to glue onto the board and clamp the whole thing up?

I see that is two questions- oops.

I Glued up the frame separately to be able to use the Kehoe Jig to cut the dovetail spline..
The frame is a press fit… just added a little glue to the inside of the frame and pressed it over the board…
Hope this explains things…

Beautiful board Larry. I liked the dovetail spline detail too. That purpleheart really stands out.
