Back braces glued, then secured in place with go bars.

After routing the braces, I glued the supports and set them in place using go bars. Go bars are flexible metal rods that apply downward pressure to materials being glued. A real danger when using go bars is their quirky tendency to ‘pop’ off and go though your tone wood or window, eyeball, whatever – these things pack a serious punch and can fly clear across the room! Like every other tool in the shop, respect the go bars.
