Every once in a while I see jigs that I want to build. Then I sort of rush through the next build solving any problems with force. But this weekend I finally got around to making a jig for the screw and barrel bolt holding the neck on all sizes but piccolos (they don't have a separate fretboard to hide the barrel nut).
I took the time to practice my dovetailing skills.
The same jig is used both on the neck blank and the body, here it is held for drilling the neck.
The body's not done yet but will be drilled like this. Not the top hole of course. The pointy end aligns with the centerline.
And it works. There are no margins here, if the holes don't line up the screw won't fit.
