So you flip the short piece, glue and your in business. The glue does act as a lubricant and the pieces want to slide all over the place I find that if you use guitar makers clamps and tighten down a little as you go you can have good results. I also really like the looks of this headstock.

A couple dozen grains of sand is enough. Salt may work too. It'll provide a little friction to keep the pieces from sliding. When clamped there's no gap or anything. I've heard of some luthiers that use sandpaper slices.

Looking good Jim!

You can sprinkle a little sand in the glue and it will help keep the joint from slipping.
