    Re: Cracked neck block

    If the screws pulled it together, you might try backing them off and see if you can get some glue into the crack, then tighten them back up.

    But I had forgotten about that shoulder. It might be...

    Re: Cracked neck block

    Re: Cracked neck block

    Re: Cracked neck block

    You can glue it, but then you essentially end up with a butt joint for the neck because the side grain joint that was originally there is no longer of any particular use. The neck tenon would still...
