Some progress on the guitar-building front

I made a little progress on my guitar-building project. (Note the projected time-scale in that post. Hollow laugh...). I rough-carved the neck, from a too-thick rectangular plank down to a nice curvy thing. The volute and heel obviously still need some work, but I'm quite proud of myself. This part was actually a lot easier than I thought it might be, and was quite fun. I mainly used a microplane rasp and a card scraper, with a little help from a spokeshave to knock the initial corners off. Below are a few pictures of the rough-carved neck. As you can see, I haven't decided what shape to make the headstock yet. It certainly won't be an exact copy of a Tele®.

Thanks to Steve for the photos.
