Taking a cue from Charles Fox, I built a jig for cutting the headstock piece off the neck blank.  Being the conservative I am, I used MDF scrap from the previous mold construction.


Did have a small problem with the fact the neck blank was a skosh out of square.  Minor issue that will resolve when I trim down the headstock and carve the neck.


Trimmed the sides, glued in the butt block and the neck block (newly purchased from StewMac).


As I look more and more at the mahogany top piece, I’m thinking the top should be spruce.
