Well, here is my attempt. The first pieces I glued up where the three handle components. I ended up with them being slightly misaligned. A bit of filing with the mulitool, and the handle sat flat on the plate. All the other pieces glued up fine, I got used to the flow of the glue, and the time it took for the solvent to evaporate.
Rather helpfully it is only 38C in the shade today, so all is going well.
