more done today as I'm 'working' from home. It means I can spend coffee breaks/lunchtime hogging wood off the back of the neck.
So lessons learned. drill inlays after final neck shaping - I didn't profile the neck, I relied on the centre line - which should be great unless you're a bit shitty at following it like me
Nothing is the end of the world, I can move the marker.
So have now hogged the majority of the neck out with a rasp, followed up by the belt sander. Very close. Sadly frets are a week or two away so I have to curb my enthusiasm.
The neck fits the pocket with about 1mm play overall which I though was bloody good for free hand, its un-noticeable really and its only a guesstimation
oh I radiused the neck to 9.5" with no drama, looking forward to bolting together and never doing another neck again. only joking.
