Red Special

The truss rod channel is cut, and the neck and body take shape.

Scarf Joints

I mark the angle for the cut, 10 degrees.

I've created an angled jig for use with my band saw to help me make a precise cut. I clamp the neck
blank to the jig just behind the blade. I then brace the neck blank on the opposite side a
s I slowly make the angled cut.

The jig helps make a clean cut.

The scarf joints are ready to be glued together.
