New top being taped up

After doing a full size layout I made four different templates to cut out the pattern. I use blue painters tape to hold the parts together. All the veneer was sized before cutting. This makes the veneer more flexible when handling and cutting.

After the main pattern of the top was taped I added the inlay.

The last step was to add the cross banding to the top.  Then it went into a vacuum bag to be pressed until the glue sets.  I use a two part resin glue for gluing.
