Hogging the neck, part 2

A little more spokeshave action brought it down to this.

Anything more would be dangerous, so it's time for the scraper. Mmmm.


I'm feeling a little shaky about blending the transitions, so I will be rereading Cumpiano for the dozenth time or so.

    My favorite shavings are the fancy ones--curls with pinstripes. I'm sure our own Fancy Nancy would agree.

    Yeah, I like those pinstripe shavings quite a bit. They are paying me some kindness for all the trouble of gluing up a neck from seven pieces of material.

    I just realized the neck is too chunky, so it will go back on the block next time to generate a fresh pile of shavings.

    Dude! Looking good! Can't wait to hear it and feel it's silky smoothness.
