I used every clamp in the shop! It was necessary to glue the five pieces of wood together that makes up the neck of my guitar. The woods used is mahogany, a curly maple and bloodwood for the stripe. Bloodwood is an extremely dense wood, so I decided to make that the backbone of my guitar. Titebond glue is used in every joint.

First I liberally applied titebond to the surface of my woods. Then I used a roller to even out the layer of titebond.

After all eight sides were even coated with titebond, I pressed them together with every clamp in the wood shop. This would remained clamped for 24 hours.
