Cutting a Scarf Joint using a Radial Arm Saw

You can easily cut a Scarf Joint, for your guitar necks, using a Radial Arm saw! The 1st step is, set your saw arm to cut at desired angle! ( usually 13-15 degs) next: using a straight piece of hardwood, set up a fence, 90 square to table fence, and at leading edge of saw blade path.

Align Stock to be cut, as deep as needed for Headstock Height.

run your headstock thru planer to desired thickness. And, a couple passes of the newly angled joints over the belt sander... and, Viola!!! A Beautiful Scarf Joint!!!
