dpm99 Posted December 14, 2008 Report Share Posted December 14, 2008 I came across a pretty nice piece of neck wood today. It's an old and dry piece of East Indian Rosewood with a pretty straight grain. Here: The grain isn't perfectly straight down the neck, but it's close, as you can see from the picture. And that's about as close to quartersawn as it gets, up and down. I'm debating whether I should just leave it as a one piece neck or if I should rip it and make a laminate neck. I think it would be cool to put a 1/4" strip of teak right down the middle. Since both are oily woods, the neck wouldn't require a finish. My fear is that the glue might not hold. From a structural standpoint, what do you think would be safer here? Leave it as is, or do a laminate neck? Thanks, -Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
