Building Necks

So I have been busy building a few necks. Two from maple and one from Acasia Melanoxylon (Blackwood). All from timber I milled myself. Here an overdose of photos of the process:

Here the Blackwood in its raw state.

I cut the Blackwood plank in half and then glued them back together with the grain in opposite direction.

Image

Then cutting the headstock bit off with a neck angle of 11 degrees.

Gluing the headstock bit on.

I now have three (timber) 'necks'.

Ebony fretboard looks nice IMO...

That's it for now. See separate thread for the guitar this neck will go on.

The other two necks will be made in due course...
