Ive determined i need a certain angle to work with the desired fretboard, fret height, and bridge that i wish to use. Using the diagram we drew in THIS THREAD, ive worked out that at the END of the neck blank, i have a measurement of "x" between the neck blank plain, and the neck angle plain. Lets just assume this measurement is Xmm. Make sure you mark on the neck blank, the "end of fretboard" line. Knowning that that measurement is Xmm, all we need to do is find something the correct thickness, to attach to the end of the neck blank. Im using a dome head screw with a course wide shank and thread. The head just HAPPENS to be the correct height, so i can screw it straigh in, but it is was too small, i could simply unscrew the screw the desired amount. Now all you have to do, it turn the neck blank upside down, and pass the neck end over a jointer (surface planer) until the timber has been shaved away to the line we previously drew as the "end of fretboard" mark. This image is a little deceiving, but its the best i could get, sorry. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
