why do you let your necks sit for 2 to 3 weeks?? is it to let the set and become stable in relation to the shaping of the wood, i have never heard of doing that bfore, maybe my ignorance seems like a good idea though, is it ok to go without letting it sit that time period

hi.. MzI

fingerboard and neck is laminated by glue.. (titebond)

but titebond have moisture.. when fingerboard & neck is planned. and it is stright..

but when glueing..

neck & fingerboard wood supply moisture.. and have moisture is reason of neck moving..

normaly back bow .. and time is gone.. it will stright or back bow..

when this my woking is end.. (current pic work)

and bulk neck back making .. neck is moving.. 2~3Weeks.

and 2~3 weeks gone.. wood removing is end..
