Tenor #1: Neck, Part I

Rough Cut Neck

I cut out the neck from two pieces of maple 1x3 that I glued up last night; since the tenor neck is a relatively skinny with only 4 strings, I thought I'd be able to get away with a 1.5" wide blank... that was cutting it pretty close, but I think it will be OK in the end. Here I've just glued the peghead ears on (much wider than necessary, but it was easier to just cut another scrap of 1x3 in half than into thirds.)

Observations: I need a jointer plane.
