« Part 1: Fitting and shaping the neck Part 2 of Building a simple cigar box guitar series Part 3: Major assembly »

This part is mostly catch-up. I ruined my first neck, rounding over one of the front edges instead of the back. I made up another, this time out of maple. It looks very similar, with the same design for the head. To stop the roundovers at the right spot, I jigged up stops on the router table. I had to set these up twice, with a separate setup for each side. Here it is, along with my router table, which I made by lopping an old desk in two.

And the roundovers on the neck. I got a little burning, but nothing that won’t sand out. As always, ignore the plastic sawhorses where a proper bench should be.
