I am building my first 8string and first laminated neck. I am happy using hand tools, and take great pride in planing wood square and smooth by hand. However, I just finished gluing up the neck of my current build and am beginning to worry about the rip sawing that is going to be required for the rough cutting of the neck profile. It will have to be by hand.....I don't have a band saw. Any comments and advise on how to proceed would be gratefully received. The blog on the build can be reviewed here. Thanks for any advise. https://clareguitar.com/2018/03/19/starting-to-make-some-progress/
