I researching and trying to learn as much as possible ahead of my first kit build which will be a Martin style 14 fret dreadnought.

I'm liking the idea of using the BluesCreekGuitars.com mold and keeping it on as much as possible so my question is about leaving the mold on and gluing the top and back using go bars while the sides stay in the mold. Does John have a video of this technique? In this video Kit Build - Glueing Top and Back Using Halo Patterns John removes from the mold and uses clamps but in the YouTube comments he says he will sometimes leave it in the mold and use go bars. I would love to see this on video.

Thanks!

Awesome, thanks!

I couldn't tell in the video but was the back already on? If on, was it glued and dried or glued and not dried or merely in place but not glued at all?

Could you do both back and top at the same time like this?
