John Abbett Posted June 25, 2008 Report Share Posted June 25, 2008 All, I bought some maple to make a few necks with, It's a large square chunk (5 x 5 x 40 ) that is basically quarter sawn. I can make the necks with the grain running horizontal or vertical. Anyone have a thought which is preferable? Looks wise, if I use the grain vertical, which would make it quarter sawn, the back of the neck would have straight lines going from the heel to the top of the headstock, and if I make it horizontal, the sides should have stright lines and the back should have some wave to the figure. .. I think I got that right. What about strength and warping tendency, I'm looking at maybe 6+ necks out of this chunk and can go either way. -John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
