About to crack a beer and watch 6-8.
Been looking forward to it all day!
im really glad I practiced carving a neck on scrap first, made the neck less daunting of a challenge.
Just watched part 7 and I wanted to say there is an additional reason to assemble a neck the way you do it, Freddy. When I look at a scan of a Gibson on a Plek, I can see where Gibson clamped the fingerboard to the neck for glue up. You can't always see it with the naked eye, but you can usually feel it and the Plek magnifies it, making it very obvious. So, though the frets may be perfectly even for a given setup from the Plek, the fingerboard is still a roller coaster underneath. Your method of clamping before fretting prevents that.
Great work, as always. I'm very much enjoying this series.
Thanks a lot of the latest instalment Freddy! Plenty more nuggets of wisdom in there.
This thread was all the way down in page 5
I'm sure people are afraid to encourage Freddy to post the next installment...some self-righteous humorless prick will call them out for attempting to cyber bully Freddy into posting against his will...
Can you type STICKY? I knew you could.
Why are we waiting?
when is the next post Freddy?
Hey guys....I'm working on the next one. I'm up to my eyeballs in other stuff. But here's a photo I thought I'd post just cause it looks neat...like a caterpillar effect...
Such a TEASE Freddy!! Thanks for the pic
That board looks gorgeous Freddy!
I like it before I've even seen it, off to watch it now and see if I can pick up a sack full of useful tips for future use
Excellent as usual Freddy! What was the long spiral router bit used for the control cavity?

The barn swallows were a cute addition
But as always: fantastic vid
thanx for taking the time to do these videos, your the best freddy.
Another great video!
Question about the binding routing jig as I'm looking around at the different options people utilize, is it reasonable to handle without a shop assistant or would you recommend getting someone to lend a hand?
