This morning work continued on the neck! I spent a pleasant couple of hours in Kim’s dads garage sorting it out. First came a couple of power sanders to give it a smoothish surface:
A power plane was then used to cut a 45 degree angle out of the corners on the back of the neck. Back to the sanders to round of these edges, then to finer sand paper to bring out the oaks grain creating no small amount of dust,
Finally the fret spacing were marked up and sawn out. Finally leaving me with this pretty looking lump of wood.
I will be cutting the brass rods to size this week ready for attaching next week, when hopefully the remaining work on the neck will be finished.
