After preparing the neck blanks square and to the correct thickness the scarf joint is cut and prepared. I use this clamping method to prepare the headstock piece for gluing.
The following picture shows a clearer view of the set up.
Once the glue surface is correctly prepared it is readied for gluing.
I score the glue surface of the head piece to give greater gluing surface and also prevent slip and aid gripping when the clamps are tightened.
Getting ready to clamp!
I use an old snooker table iron to apply heat to the wood being glued. Notice
the blocks and neck glued in the background.
