Day 5

Okay!  The Lil’ Buckaroo is fretted, the neck joint is made, rough sanded out, the box is done, and we’re doing finish samples.  We’ve also made some trial firestripe pickguards for the project.  We’ve been burning the midnight oil, but it is on schedule!

I've made a hand planer fretboard radiusing jig from an example from John Greven, it will radius a fretboard in a couple passes!

We made the bolt-on neck joint using a shopmate's mill...overkill!

    Cool guitars! I was wondering if you mad(sharpened) your own planer blade for your handheld radius jig or if you had it done someplace and if so where. I’m trying to get my tooling together and build some guitars! 🙂
