At first the tails of the side plates are very tight inserted in the sole by filing. After that a small angle is filed at the tails. Check wether all parts match perfect together.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The gap between the tails and the sole will be closed by peening the overhang of the sole in this opening.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To do that a peening block is prepared. The peening block is composed from a piece of hard wood, two steel plates screwed on, a clamp and two screws to ceep all things together.  This  peening block is now clamped in a machinist vise.

The shell can now be filed and sanded as well as the wood parts are treated with rasps and sand paper to the final shape. At least the wood is oiled with Danish Oil or a similar product.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
