wrnchbndr's photos: Ric Neck Joint


I'm really digging this method of creating a neck pocket for a set neck. I just make my neck blanks all accurate in width, make a very basic router template for the same width -- length of the pocket is generally unimportant. I set the router depth to the design spec and then put the neck into the pocket and trim down the back of the heel to ne flush with the back of the body. Both the body and the back cap establish the neck angle and provide the strength.
