Looks Like I Might Have Enough Wood.

Started on the neck and cut some strips for the linings.

Had to drop the exposure, even then it is hard to see how I cut the kerfs in the linings. I use a piece of wood with a slot cut in it to limit the depth of the cut. You have to have all the pieces the same thickness to get the same depth of cut. I dimension them on my drum sander before this stage.

And the linings glued in and the neck glued up.

What is this "enough wood" of which you speak? lol

Great work. Making your own kerfing looks very tedious.

I like the look of your old band saw. Looks like cast metal, probably not a lot of plastic on the saw, if any. Watch the fingers, though. Your build-in-progress looks nice, and is a pretty ambitious project. Best of luck for a fine git.
