Set #6 Building the necks & finger boards

Postby EFElliott » Sat Jan 31, 2009 8:29 pm

Allright, we're starting the necks, I'm making 2 out of Hard Rock Maple and 2 out of Flame Maple, all 4 will have Brazilian Rosewood fingerboards. So far I've planed the maple blocks and Rosewood down to a workable thickness, traced around my patterens with a Sharpe, now we're ready to saw'em out.

I've attached a shaping template to back of the neck blank and began pin routing the neck profile.

Here I'm profiling the fingerboards, first sawing them to shape, then finishing up with the beltsander, gettin' them ready to glue on the necks.
