Cigar box guitar pt.IV

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:

In the wondrous cave of power tool treasures.

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,

Dust which my camera phone didn't catch

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.
