How I made my K2 Telephone Box
Author: Les Kenny; Editor: Maree Anderson


Step 3.4. continued

When I had marked the position of the neck on the underside of the head (it was all upside down at that stage), I took the neck off and fixed (glued and nailed) the scotia to the head slightly away from the position marks. That was to ensure that the neck would have a bit of play inside the scotia i.e. the head was not a tight fit.
Itís very important that I allowed a little bit of play. I wanted the neck to be able to slip easily into place.

Having fixed the scotia, I placed the neck on the head to ensure that it fitted easily.

I removed the neck from the head and positioned it on top of the body.

There I fixed it permanently in place and ran 1" (25mm) quarter-round wood around the neck, fixing it with glue and nails to both the neck and the body.
