Laying out the Fretboard

Maple inserts cut and ready
I didn't get a picture of gluing them in, as
my fingers were covered with glue.
and before I got back to shop to get a picture, 
Jerry had gone down, cut and sanded them flat.

Fretboard ready to sand and install

And there you have the process not including the
cutting out and shaping the blanks.

Are you ready to build one now?

Wow- That is quite an involved process, Jettie. It's a beautiful piece. Can't wait to see it done. Great job so far. xo Diana

Good grief, build these?
Thanks so much for coming to visit and following. I am following you right back....maybe we can meet in the middle for some French Toast and a lesson in building a musical instrument....:)) Sounds like a plan to me....:))

Jettie what a work of art-it's neat to see all the steps and stages that go into one. I just bet it smells so wonderful in there, just love the smell of wood.
