Now it?s important that we get this thing glued straight so it doesn't do that or that. So we're going to put a clamp on this now and clamp it just lightly. We're going to put this part in the rest of the back while the glue is still wet so we have to move kind-a fast. So we'll put this off to the side for right now and start with gluing the back. We're going to do the same thing to the back as far as glue is concerned that we did to the other one. Glue in the slot and brush it around. And we're going to do that same thing to both sides of the back, don't put any glue in the front yet. Simply put glue in these parts of the back. This is where your labels going to come in very, very important so you know which leg you're working on. So we have glue in the holes and we're ready to start putting glue on the parts.
