After roughing out the neck, I set to work with a plane and scraper to smooth out the head part of the neck. This is quite time consuming, so progress this week has been fairly slow – but it is definite progress.

To give some idea of the current status, this is the neck so far with the fretboard placed (not yet attached) in position

And to provide some context, this photo shows the relationship of the components
