It's time to cut the dovetail joint which attaches the neck to the body.  You can see the neck in the jig I use for this cut.  The neck goes in and out of the jig many times as I gradually cut the joint deeper.  This allows me to make corrections so the final cut fits the neck at the correct allignments.  The second picture shows this fitting.
