Follow along as I build a tenor guitar. In this video I build a fixture to hold the guitar in order to cut the neck mortise.

You know I think I like making jigs and fixtures just as much as making the project itself. Besides, once you made the jig or fixture you never have to make it again. Only problem is finding room to store them all. Great video Randy.

Hi Doug -

You’re exactly right – when it comes to guitar building the most time consuming part is often building the jigs. In this case I’ll spend a few hours building and setting up to cut a mortise the will take just a few minutes to actually cut.

I’m thinking for a one time build, it may be faster in cases like this to hand cut the mortise.
