Thanks Rich, note, that I can screw up with conventional tools, you'll see. Made the template. Tested the fit Cut the mahogany in two. The narrower one I'll use now for this neck since it's painted, I will glue wings and it won't show Cut close to the line Attached the template and proceeded to route Routed the truss rod channel Then wanted to enlarge the channel access, so moved the fence one side perfectly, then on the other side, I got a brain absence and moved it a full 1/4 in. Don't ask, I don't know why. Just felt the logic thing to do. That will be an easy fix that I'll take care when I glue the wings on the headstock The width of the tenon is perfect. I will need to adjust the fit, but that's for another day Got to this point far faster than yesterday and had a lot more fun.
