Rasping the neck profile

"I actually have 8 rasps, a spokeshave, plenty of sanding blocks. hand saws. hand drills---I can build guitars without any electricity at all :) I also have a butt-load of powered woodworking tools, but I always finish my necks by hand :) "

Hi Hippy Chip, welcome to the Clubhouse!

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is... and add yourself to the Member Map. There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
