Restauration broken guitar neck

My guitar fell from its stand. With the capo on first fret it fell on the ground. The head was completely separated from the neck. The local Luthier didn't want to take the risk to repair it. Time for a diy restauration. Luckily I have an CNC mill so I decided...

Neck-repair

...to glue the head as good as possible on the neck, with the best alignment I could get. I milled a peg and milled its exact negative in the back of the neck of the guitar. This is quite tricky because inside the neck there is an iron bar to control its curve. I can do the milling with the CNC mill without any force or tension. This form-fixed solution gave a perfect result.
