Previously, I've cut notches in the bouts, spline or both and made them fit so tightly that you can pick up one end and lift the whole thing up like a Tinkertoy. Precision work, but a pain in the tailpiece. This time I'll try cutting the bout into 3 pieces and gluing them with the bouts in place, so tightly that the bouts will stay in place, even without glue, friction only. Then I will slide the bouts out.
I COULD glue the three pieces of spline in at the same time I glue the three bouts, but that's a half-dozen pieces with different shapes. Sounds like an accident waiting to happen to me.
