a little bit of neck work on the side

With some family encouragement I decided on this headstock cover and have attached it to the head.

Neck work began with a chisel to rough out the heel, then finer paring then planing, spokeshave and a bit of sculpting with a rasp to feel the form. Then back to planes and scrapers. The neck can't be too finely shaped yet, as there are fingerboard and truss rod and neck/body joint issues to attend to first.
