Power Graft

quick graft

A friend of mine whipped up some jigs to permit him to make quick neck grafts in blocks of rough, uncarved wood that he could then carve so that his new “antique” instruments would have authentic neck grafts in them. When he came to visit me, he brought this dummy graft test made of a couple of pieces of construction lumber. Normally a neck graft takes hours to complete, but this setup makes one in a few minutes. Of course you could never safely do something like this with an valuable old instrument!
