Making A Guitar Neck

Today I made the neck for the guitar I posted about on Saturday. Once again, I am using the Scheltema jig to form the back contour. This time around, I decided to make the truss rod slot deeper than I usually do. The deeper slot allowed me to plane down the surface where the fretboard will be glued on. After a couple of passes through my jointer, the slot is now at the correct depth. The reason I did this was to thin the neck. Instead of a fat "C" shape, I now have a thin "C" shape. Check out the photos so far:
