It's Done!

Gluing on the top followed the exact same procedure as gluing on the bottom. Because the back of the guitar is curved, I shimmed the neck end of the bottom to provide a solid clamping area without putting stress on the sides.

Once the top is glued, the top is trimmed to its exact size with the laminate trimmer. After that is accomplished, I performed some of the finish sanding to smooth out the body of the guitar, up to 180 grit sandpaper. After that, you start the binding process.
