The first thing I did this morning was to joint and glue
the spruce top halves and the maple back halves.
While those are glued up, I set about working on the neck.
To the right is the 1-1/2" by 2-1/2" block of maple
for the neck, wrapped with carbon paper and the neck template
pattern. After tracing the outlines, I removed the papers.
Below is the result. I have drilled the four tuning peg
holes with a 3/16" bit.
