So, I have 2 weeks off from work. Yay for me! Woohoo ...vacation! (sorry, had to celebrate). I've been working hard in the (new) garage the last two days, getting my necks prepared, as I'm trying to get together a batch of 4 or 5 instruments in these 2 weeks. There'll be 4 guitars and only one bass, unfortunately. I already threw one neck in the wood pile bin due to premature ejaculation, I mean tapering. I tried to route the taper using a bearing bit against a straightedge, but the bearing slipped and all hell broke loose. I need a new method of tapering, desperately. I'm thinking of breaking down and purchasing a used tablesaw. Is using a taper jig and a tablesaw the most practical way to taper? What kind of saw blade should I get if I do go the tablesaw route? I know this question has been asked before, and I did a search, but I'm not happy with the answers I found and Hambones jig he built seems far too complicated for me. I'll upload some pics of the projects when I can figure out how to reduce the size of my images. The guitars will be some singlecuts, inspired by the singlecut basses I enjoy so much, and Scott French's green beard hair masterpiece guitar.
