Greek Bouzouki Construction Blog
This is my Greek Bouzouki Construction Blog. I will be posting pictures and an explanation of how I design and make my instruments. I will also be covering other Greek bouzouki topics related to purchase, proper set up, and playing accessories. Please stop by often, and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Cutting the headstock angle

Cuttng the headstock angle

Glue the headstock blank to the front of the neck blank with Titebond glue and a piece of newspaper between the two pieces (this makes it easier to separate after cutting).  When the glue has dried, cut the headstock angle on a table saw with an angle guide, or with a handsaw.  Once the cut is made the excess neck blank wood can be removed from the headstock and the excess headstock wood can be removed from the neck blank with a sharp blow from a mallet.

 Planning the headstock joint

Lay the headstock on top of the neck blank so that the angled cuts line up, and clamp in place.  Plane and sand the two faces so that they are flat, square and smooth.

Glueing the headstock

Flip the headstock over, and glue it in place, making sure to line up the front of the neck blank with the front of the headstock.
