I can see all that, but I wonder at setting up all those bars
simultaneously, I would have thought it more practical to work from the
center bars towards each end, go barring each in turn, working with no
breaks. Perhaps begin by dryfitting and shift the lower end of each go
bar next to where it goes, if necessary with a slip of wood under it so as
to not mar the soft top. Do all that the night before, close up the box
and do the glueup in the am (at my house which is near the sea, that is
often the driest part of the day).
Mind you, I am new to luthiery and have yet to do a top.
