"Depends on what wood type the dowel is made of will determine if a trussrod is needed. Example - Soft Pine Sledge Hammer Handles would be great being  most are made of Hickory."

"if you've got room, and a circular saw and a jig saw, I've seen where people took old coffee or end tables, cut a slot, and mounted them upside down under the table for a cheap homemade mini table saw or poor mans bandsaw."

Thanks, I am mostly just making them for the fun of it and the art part, I don't plan nor want to sell too many as it will get in the way of building guitars, But I do want to make a webpage soon and have the different arts on display, Thanks again and keep in touch!...John

Paul - I definitely want to follow your progress on this new amp circuit you're building.  May be interested in one down the road, but now I've got too many projects going on.  Most are NOT amps, but I've got the guts for a couple of those as well.  Keep me & the nation posted!

Thanks for the info buddy. That's good to know, I'm still new to this building thing. Just learn as I go. It's been fun!!!  I made a banjo neck out of popular, it's about 1 1/2 thick it's ok so far. I do like the red oak and maple. I wonder if red bud would be ok?

At 9:15pm on June 27, 2016, Rooster Reaves said…

That's what this neck is. I made a poplar neck for another build I did. It came out nice.
