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.

Making the neck blank

Materials for neck blank 

The neck blank is made of curly maple (although normally, Basswood is used).  The board is cut into three pieces so that the middle piece is 1/8 inch thick.  Two contrasting pieces of hardwood are inserted to add stiffness to the neck.  Usually, woods such as ebony, rosewood or wenge are used. 

Neck blank being clamped

Titebond or epoxy can be used to glue the pieces together.  Assemble the neck blank, clamp the pieces together and set aside to dry.
