The Neck The last few days have been based around the neck. First I flattened the back using a fairly wide square cut router bit on the pin router. The neck was stuck FB down to a bit of MDF and the headstock end raised by 3mm to give me a 3mm taper head to heel. The head stock roughly levelled the same way to close to 15mm. I use the facet method, with my pin router unit hand held with a long, very rough ( rougher than Kwerk's head!) burr, I proceed to try to keep within the confines of the lines on the back. This will be a trapezoidal shape which I like, so really only two facets to cut, but scary just the same, and messy! Needless to say lots of sanding to follow but that's ok. To get to the desired shape I use three different grades of paper and some flat sanding plates as well as some flat and round dense foam sanding shapers to get the curves and blend it all together. Some pics to follow for you're listening and dancing pleasure. Apologies to Kwerk for the above observation......but he knew he could never have missed out completely!
