Tool Challenged Bookmatching Method...


Recommended Posts

Old fashioned glass plate. Sandpaper glued to it. Right angle to hold wood perpendicular to the sanding plate (showing rough cut first). As soon as I can find a 2x4 that is square, I will use it in place of the drawing triangle. Apply titebond to edges to be bonded. Use pipe clamps to squeeze edges. Add weight to top of pieces being glued to prevent bowing (gluing and weight not added here because pieces not quite ready for gluing yet). Clamp for 12-24 hours. somewhat time/labor intensive. Works well though. See photos below...





Eventually, I hope to get all of my bookmatching done so I can load all of the pics and so one can select tops and backs to make their guitars from. I only build chambered body electrics. Boggs
