Default Joining Plates/Bending Sides/Neck Blank


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.
