The side layout is drawn on the side using a template.









After being cut to profile, the sides are bent over the mold with a heat blanket.





They are then placed in a cooling jig to cool.





The mahogany-maple-walnut-maple-mahogany neck sandwich is glued up.







Order Up: One five-piece neck sandwich ready for cutting and carving.

Like a castle in his corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
