Wow! Very nice work. I love the photos showing the different steps. I'm not sure how you repaired the neck pocket area with the missing wood. Also, was the wood screw a part of the previous repair?

I was able to epoxy the original piece back on and yes the screw was part of the origin repair. The screw will eliminate any weakness.

thanks!

Yep, the bag is the only way to get uniform down force across the top.
