Neck Carving.........and more

I've just completed the “woodwork” on David’s Standard mandolin and I thought that I’d show you a few photos of the neck carving process. For me, carving the neck is the last big job, up until now, the neck has been left square; this makes gluing the fretboard on and the whole fretting process much easier.
Step 1 take off  the waste wood- down to the fretboard's edge.
Step 2 take the neck to near its final depth.
Step 3 carve the profile
 And after much carving, scraping, sanding and checking; the final neck!

And here's a couple of photos for the family album...............
