Heading onwards…

Terrible puns are the future. Resistance is futile…

After truing the neck blank, and levelling the peghead, the head is veneered front and back; you can’t have too many clamps for this! The front recieves a 3mm Madagascar RW veneer with flame maple acent, and the back gets 1.5mm East Indian RW, which will flow out into a small volute.

After plenty of time for the glue to set up, the head gets drilled for the tuners, and the trussrod access is routed with a 1/4″ radius ball end cutter. Once that is all dealt with, the trussrod is glued into the channel with slow curing epoxy and left to cure over night. In the meantime, I’ll start preparing some binding material for the neck and body.

    This blog always makes me feel untalented, unskilled and ignorant. Like, more than usual.

    Nice work Ant.

    That’s exactly what I’m aiming for Jamie, good to know it’s working.

    Likewise, your’s always makes me feel tolerant and well adjusted. Until it inspires a 3 paragraph rant on cash machine ettiquette. Then the illusion is shattered, and I realise I’m overflowing with suppressed rage and bitterness.

    Nice work.
