Yesterday working on the Guitar.


Marked out the shape of the headstock…

Off to the band saw cut the relief on the headstock… sliced off the excess…[will be smoothed at the TWC]

I find having the resaw guide [MagSwitch brand] is easier on the other side of the blade…And now for the Demon shape….Involving Johnathan in each part of the build… it is his after all … I am just providing the workshop.. and some tuition…

NB…..taped the offcuts back to the blank… to cut the shape…

Smoothing the headstock at the TWC… [the ability to thickness part of a project with out interferring with the rest…]
The tapers of the neck are also cut on the bandsaw…

Rough shaping is done…

The TWC allows us to smooth the headstock…

This the headstock ready for final shaping…next week…

But while we had the TWC working… we set a pocket in the body to accept the neck…

Rather simple actually…

Clamp the body on the machine…set some parameters by eye… and then fine tune..

Using a half inch straight flute cutter and sneaking up on the depth..

A little closer….

Final depth achieved…

Quick check with the sample neck…

Looks like a nice fit..

Zoom out…

I know this post is a little longer than I normally put up… but we did get a fair amount done yesterday… and I know that there are a lot of  peoples watching… and hopefully learning…

Next jam session …lol… will be next Tuesday… due mainly to the Brisbane Timber and Working With Wood Show… this weekend…

Unfortunately I will not be demonstrating at the show….as Ned Kelly said…

SUCH IS LIFE…
