Truss rod and bolt on tenon

Today I routed a channel for the truss rod and then fashioned a Mahogany spline to cover the rod and couple the spline to the neck. I then drilled two holes through the end of the neck to accommodate the two barrel bolts that will eventually assist in joining the neck to the body. Next I used the table saw and my neck jig to cut out the tenon. I cut a 5 degree angle at the neck end that will be parallel to the body end.  Preparing the Ziricote headstock veneer is the next step.
