@russ

I didn’t word my post very well and what I meant to say was that I’m ok with someone telling me it’s not good enough yet

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

@rocknroller912 all down to personal preference I guess, personally love a neck to be super thin but know people who love and hate either extreme. 

…on an elaborate journey to turn trees into music.

I’ve been searching my scrap pile for bits to make the body on my practice build and came up with these. Philippine Mahogany on the outside and an old bit of Mahogany window frame in the middle, all planed and joined by hand of course. It’s only 30mm thick so I’m searching for a backing plate. It would be nice make a top cap and to show the stripe on the back, but probably the neck joint would be weak.

If you're okay with it @rocknroller912 then chunky is good. I like it chunky. 

The problem is that chunky means something different to everyone. I suppose, the best way to find out is to let several people play your guitar and ask if they could describe the neck  🙂

@koendb

Yes it’s hard to find a balance that feels good and a neck that’s too thin can be hard to play I find, as well as being unstable.

What’s this in the post - a tube for a tube. Ok it’s just my new rasp for body carving from the Bailey workshop. Great timing Carol.
