Default Rough Neck Shaping

The shape of the neck is laid out, and the necks cut to rough shape.

Notice here that the curve in the heel is cleaner on the mahogany neck. The maple is harder than the mahogany, thus the saw's cut is rougher on the maple neck.

Here the you can see the layout of the sweeping shape of the carved heels.

The necks cut down to rough thickness. The rough full-width volute is visible here.

The necks cut to rough width.

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
