Neck work

Two tenor necks. One is from an old instrument that is being reworked, the other is new. Both need more work, obviously.

Uke Necks

New neck, old neck, shy neck, bold neck. Wait, that doesn’t make sense.

Cutting that tenon would have been a lot easier if I’d planned ahead and done it on the table saw before I glued the ears on the headstock. Either way I expect it would need fine-tuning with a chisel, so no real difference.

The old neck is getting about 1/8″ taken off for the entire length. It’s too heavy and feels like playing a baseball bat. I’ve already planed the headstock down.

Next week I’ll have¬†something different and hopefully exciting (in a good way, not involving blood or paramedics.) If I get around to posting it.
