Follow along as I build a tenor guitar. In this video I trim the ends of the braces, notch the kerfed lining and glue the guitar top to the sides.

Tis true that one can never have too many clamps. Projects like this are proof of that. The guitar is coming along nicely. Has the weather where you live had any adverse affects on the guitar?

Hi Doug -
The weather is a problem. We get big swings in temperature and humidity especially in the spring and fall.
I keep the guitar in progress and associated parts in the house and take them out to the shop just when working on them.
As soon as I did this last glue-up, I took the guitar back into the house to dry. I do have a heater in the shop but run it only when I’m out there.
The old saying about clamps is true – I could have used a few more this time, and I do run short occasionally.

I haven’t commented recently on the videos but I’ve been watching them! They are really great! I will definitely be referencing these in the future when I make my ukulele! Thanks a lot for taking the time do make these!
