Ok, I made 8 basses so far and I made my neck the following steps: Plane a 3/4" thick board wide enough Cut the angled head and glue it Route the trussrod channel Glue the fingerboard (no radius, flat fingerboard) Trim the back of the neck of about 1/8 at nut making a light angle at the back of the neck (using safe-t-planer) Frets slots using my table saw Cut the neck edges (taper) with my bandsaw Glue headstock "ears" and headplate Cut the headstock shape and drill tuner holes Carve the back of the neck with rasp and spokeshave Radius the fingerboard with concave sanding bloc (by hand) That's pretty much it. The only problem I see is the fingerboard radiusing. It is done by hand, it take a while and it is hard to get a straight finish the first time, I have to place a long ruler (1M) and check for high spots to make everything straight. I can not afford a Grizzly radiusing machine and most radiusing jig I saw using a router used before gluing the fingerboard on the neck. By having a radiused board, I can not trim the back of the neck because i need a flat surface. Anyway, any suggestion? ideas? how do you work? Thanks for sharing!
