Recommended Posts

im building a lp style guitar for my shop class and im ready to route the neck pocket but theres not really any way for me to do it at school ... no jigs or anything so my question is do u guys think it would be ok the route the pocket a little deep and then glue a wedge in?(they wont like us take our projects home till they are done otherwise id do it there)

Dude, if you have scraps of ply or MDF and a few screws, you have all the tools needed to route an angle neck pocket. Jigs just make it easier to do once they're built, but they're certainly not necessary. Hell, all I've ever done neck pockets with to date is scraps of ply and a few screws. Maybe a clamp.

Alternately, just angle the tenon.
