Neck carving part 2

For the second carving session I concentrated on the overall neck shape and on the volute, mainly using a scraper (actually the blade from my spokeshave, but that works very well this way), sandpaper and sometimes a rasp or a file. I must say it’s taking shape rather well and I still like my approach so far.

Next time I will concentrate on the transition at the body end and the neck shape on that side of the neck. The fourth and last session should be the final touch and completion of the neck profile.
