Yeah... I know... there are tons of threads about building jigs to automate the process of the neck carve. They are awesome, but I have not found any I'm willing to devote the time and energy to build quite yet. I got some wood from work... 2x12 Douglas fir that was used as a guard rail. It was hit and broken, so the Facilities dept knows I'm always on the hunt for wood, so they called me! Wasn't sure what to use this stuff for... but I had a neck to carve and my typical method is to carve the neck while holding it my lap on a high stool. It's not the best way to do it, but it works. I had seen a couple of variants on this type of jig in the past, but just didn't bother because I wanted to build one of the fancy ones. Trouble is, there is only so much time in a day/week to devote to building, so something simple would have to do for now. This jig will be even easier for a flat neck, but to make it more interesting and fun, the neck to be carved has a 10 degree headstock. It's so simple, just a bit of measuring on your part and cut the jig out! Just a couple of clamps to hold the neck in place. I used some old denim as a soft layer between the neck and the jig. Then just rasp, file, sand until the neck is carved. I also picked up this handy little tool... Works great!
