Neck Carving

⚒⚒ NECK CARVING ⚒⚒


A painful part of instrument making but it's got to be done! As we are fully create all our instruments by hand without the aid of any CNC or laser cutting here's a little photo demo of how we make our own necks.


⚒ Mahogany length cut to size and glued to approximate shape. ⚒ Fret board glued into place and neck cut to size.


⚒Headstock veneers and heel cap fitted.


⚒ Now for the fun part... numerous attempts of rasping, rasping and more rasping and sanding until correct size, shape and feel are achieved. This can take hours to achieve the perfect shape and feel neck, but we love it!



And voila, a full neck completed ready for fitting. Only 14 more to do 😏 🎼
