    Started this a month ago or so, moving slowly due to working full time + having to children (and let’s not forget my wife), but hey, I’m having a blast.

    Plan is to start on the neck this week.

    Started on the neck a couple of days ago. Going to spend a couple of hours in garage this evening, hope to get some more routing done, maybe do the headstock, both shape and thickness.

    Scary stuff, routing the truss rod channel.

    Very nice work. I have a V/Exploere build going too. Take your time on that tenon neck body joint before you add the fretboard.much easier to sand down the hips without the fretboard in the way.

    E3DA59AA-D495-4BD6-A596-42D887B2A5A1.jpeg Did some more on the neck last week and did most of the neck pocket routing tonight. Still have to get rid of about 1 mm or so and the neck needs more work to make it go deeper into the pocket. Neck tenon should be where it suppose to be. It’s tight, but not to tight.

    A little update on this. Winter arrived and it got way too cold to be doing any builing in my garage. Then spring came and everything else got in the way. Thing is that I've also been afraid, very afraid, of starting on the fretboard. I'm not the best with the planer in hand, and it takes like "forever" to get things down to the proper thickness. So, I started looking for a planer and found a used one for cheap instantly. Lucky me, the guy that sold it had changed the knives and adjusted it properly, so it was just to plug in the power and get to work.

    So, yesterday I finally pulled the plug and started feeding the planer with some old rosewood (it's suppose to be from the sixties, I got it from an old furniture factory that got shut down almost thirty years ago). Amazing looking piece of wood.

    I also bought a fretboard miter jig from lmi months ago. Some minor adjustments and ten minutes later it started looking like a fretboard (the first fret slot is where the nut is going, so the "sniper" line will be cut of).

    Maybe today I'll be trimming the fretboard down to the correct size, sand it to the correct radius and maybe later this week do som fretting and then gluing it all together with the rest of the so-called guitar.

    Nice score on the thickness planer! The woods in your final shot look great.

    Thanks! I got another blank of rosewood waiting for another project as well, and I do believe the guy I got it from still have more available. I have to check. Quality wood that has been stored under properly conditions.
