Got the neck block shaped today. This was interesting to make as it has different shapes at top and bottom – both need to meet the sides in a complex curve.
I marked out the shapes on top and bottom, then connected the ends of the lines.
I was origininally going to shape this with the sander but gouge and scraper seemed like fun so I went with that. It was most enjoyable and the result is pretty accurate.
I think the sides may need tweaking slightly to fit the block but the gaps are small. I haven’t worked out how I clamp the setup for gluing yet – that could be trickly…
