According to soundboard thickness and formula, mark how deep the bind bar goes.
The router jig is designed by David Hughes. Jude, the shop owner, marked where the router handle shall be on the plexiglass. Rout a little at a time so the wood won't chip.
Put soundboard in piano to check how well (or bad) the routing job is done. Adjust accordingly. Then sand the glue surface flush.
The bottom clamping jig is cut to accommodate the ribs. Check width of bindbar between top of bevel and soundboard edge, trim premade & over sized bindbar to width.
Glue on bindbar, clean glue squeeze-out thoroughly. Let dry at lease 1 hour before unclamping. Great demo by shop owner Mr. Jude Reveley.
