CABLE NELSON 5’6” GRAND RESTORATION

Cable-Nelson 5’6” Grand, shown in its new home in Reno, NV., after re-manufacturing.  I have replaced many soundboards but this is a brief pictorial narrative of one project.

Fitting ribs to rim

Tracing in preparation for cutting new panel

Marking rough rib specifications

Beginning to lay out rib press.  We use a pneumatic press with pre-crowned ribs at low EMC.  Santa Ana weather provides an ideal soundboard-building climate.
