GaryDolman Posted August 23, 2005 Report Share Posted August 23, 2005 aaaarrggggg, everthing seemed to be going so well, I made a template to route the neck pocket, used a flush template bit set everthing up, measured again checked the template was stable, took a deep breath and went at it with the plunge router. the first cut went well, I reset the depth on the router and made the second pass, the router bearing was following the first cut due to the depth of the route but while cutting I noticed that there was a visible ledge on the second cut. Consequently each cut produced another ledge, I thought I was going to be ok figuring that I would just chisel the sides down and even them up. after finishing with the router I sat the neck in the pocket and discovered that it was too big, the neck had a very noticeable gap between the pocket and the neck. I put the whole project on hold for a few days to collect my thoughts and try to figure out how to fix this mess before I scrap the whole body and start over. The only way I can see to salvage this is to laminate a piece of scrap on the inside of the neck pocket and try another template to cut with. Is this my only option? Will the neck pocket be strong enough with laminated side? Help!!!!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
