Neck time!!

So, if there's a new process to try out, don't try it on a commission, right?

I haven't bound a headstock before, so the dread shaped mando became the guinea pig......

glue on the rosewood head plate.....


then route & bind.....


tenons rough cut.....

OK, happy with that, lets have a go at the bound headstock on #42.....

route the channel.....


then bend & glue in the maple binding.


I ran out of batteries in the camera so I don't have an "all the bandages" pic, but trust me, it's done!!
