When the glue is perfectly dry, these cross struts are then shaped at the ends and along the entire length as shown in Fig. 15 and finally glasspapered perfectly smooth.
A central strut, from top block to bot-
torn block, is next fitted. This " seals'' the centre join in the back and prevents any possibility of it opening. This strut, which will be in four (or five) sections�depending upon the number of cross struts used�is glued in between the cross struts and is prepared from a piece of spruce or syca�more about 1" wide and not more than about 1/16" high at its centre, the edges being scraped down to a feather edge before fitting. (See Fig. 16.)
Now clean up the work done by carefully removing any surplus glue with a chisel and finally glasspapering all the struts.
