some belated updates....
Friday is nearly over so here is another update on the J..
Bit of bad news about the build, the neck has moved a bit too much since cutting the shape so I'm going to scrap it and start again. I would try and work around it but there not enough meat left to get it back to being flat and true. This is why I leave the timber to settle after cutting. Most of the time they don't move much at all, but this was one of the blanks that did! OH well, thats the nature of wood!
So heres a little interesting thing for you, after realising the neck was going to the land of the scrap I decided to make the truss rod routing jig.
and after the first pass (note the scrap neck being my test subject!)
Works perfectly! Bang in the center and perfect depths etc!
not as exciting as the usual posts I know...I have been doing a bit of restoration work this week though which has seen most of my time!
Right I gotta make me another neck
