Step 2: The Mould
In order to make the neck block, I assembled one out of 6 pieces that I cut out of the 2 x 10 x 12 and glued together(the last piece to be glued was thinned down by about 1/4 of an inch). I used the mitre saw to perform a dado cut on each neck block piece, I found it to be much more precise than cutting out the slot on top with a jigsaw. As for the corner blocks, I cut out four pieces measuring 8-3/4" long out of the 2 x 2 x 8. The end pin block was simply a piece of 2 x 6 that was cut to 8-3/4" in length.
