Kit #2 arrives today from KMG!
I'm thinking of using CA for the binding, and I have read that when using CA with a spruce top, one must be careful to seal the top edges to prevent bleed-in of the glue.
Would this same warning hold for the redwood top I'll be working with?

Absolutely the same. I have a redwood top on which I forgot, and the bleed - while not yellow - darkens the redwood about 1/4-inch in. Seal any edges with shellac;two coats if possible.
