Finished gluing on the back and sides on the Maple OM.  I also, before assembling top, routed out the truss rod channel and drilled the neck bolt holes in the neck block.  Looks good.  Next step fairing and truing the sides before I move on to binding.

Applied first set of practical knowledge from workshop by creating a posterboard template, then a plexiglass template for the headstock.  This will allow me to center my MOP on the headstock plate when gluing the veneer, and accurately locate the tuning machine holes.
