Stuff I made this weekend

I was at the big workshop today, and managed to get some things done. Ronald's tenor neck was stacked and sawn, the wenge neck for my reso was sanded on a belt sander - wenge is so hard to carve I just ruined some knives on it.

I also took two of the cedar neck blanks I bought from Pete to the bandsaw, and from each I got two soprano necks and one piccolo neck. I don't know for sure if I'm going to make piccolos with cedar necks, but now I got them.

Finally, I attempted to make fretboards of lilac that was cut outside my house. But it had a spongy core, and I need to measure carefully to see if I can get pieces wide enough without resorting to flatsawn boards.
