« Part 7: Bracing the soundboard Part 8 of One More Guitar series Part 9: Gluing on the soundboard and prepping the back. »

Here I finally take the neck I glued up in an earlier episode and shape it with drawknife, rasp and sanding.

This is part 8 of the making of a guitar after a 44 year hiatus from from having made them long ago in my youth.

It is as I learned it in Camden, Maine from Luthier Nikos Apallonio in the mid 70’s. The process uses only ordinary shop tools and simple homemade jigs.
