I cut the neck out with the band saw





The router grabbed the curl of the headstock and ripped it off. My bad. I should practice more before I do the next thing with that rig.

It will just have a pointy head stock I guess.

I made a lot of sawdust shaping the neck.

This might be boring.. But then it might be one of those gratifying things to watch... So I'll just drop the links.

I'm using a Japanese alligator rasp here. It's amazing.

Part of the learning curve. It's just a hunk of wood and not your hand, so you're cool.

That is way better than the standard roundy Fender headstock, which (I believe) was just meant to suggest this shape:



(This is one of those things you cannot unsee.)

I can't see that picture.

And the head stock looks like a KKK hood now.

I'll have to put googly eyes on it

A little curvature of the sides, rounding of the top, an undercut and a peg then you'll have it!

I glued the finger board on tonight.


Inserted the truss rod, masked it carefully


I forgot to take a pic of the glue. Clamps went on. It did try to slide around, but I think I have it centered enough. I'm going to cut close with the band saw and then either rout the edge again, or sand it.

Not really happy with the glue on the edges





I took the edges of the finger board off with the band saw within about 1/16" free hand, then put it on the router table to get it flush.



To fill the little gaps, I sanded and packed the saw dust into the gaps. Then I ran a bead of super glue along the seam. Hit it with accelerator and sanded again. It's acceptable.



I also reshaped the head stock a bit.
