So i built my first neck template today for a strat that i have been working on. I used Colt's method utilizing the Ameican standard neck PDF as a starting point. I glued the heel portion of the printout on some 1/2" MDF and extended the centerline. I then measured 18 3/8" from the heel to the nut marking a line perpendicular to the cinterline to line up the headstock portion of the drawing. Cut it out with a band saw close to the line and use a disk and drum sander to hit the round edges. Used a router and a strait edge for the sides of the neck. I didn't take any pictures during construction but a got a couple of the completed template.
