Ukulele Build Part 9

Today the sides were glued up with head and tail pieces.  Cauls were used to hold the pieces in place while the glue dried.  I also experimented with different type of linings for increasing the gluing area for the sides and top/bottom.  The kit came with thin bindings but I am used to something a little more substantial so the photo shows both type in the jig for fitting purposes.  The braces and bridge plate were glued to the tops and bottoms.  Hide glue was used for all glue joints.
