Guitar Build - Day 3

I started making adjustments to the neck today. A Les Paul neck has a 4 degree offset to the body. To achieve a neck-through design I had to cut a wedge from the neck which I will later glue onto the back. It took me about an hour to cut and chisel the wood.
Here is the body template that I made previously. This gives a good idea of what the guitar should look like later down the line.
