Fret slotting update

Small update: I finished cutting the initial fret slots. Since they are exactly the fret tang height in depth, and I will radius the board, I need to do another pass; but at least, the positions are marked. The result is reasonable. Deviation is within my tolerance boundaries (one way, up to a maximum of 0.25 to 0.3 mm).

The ebony wasn’t a lot of fun to cut with such a little saw, by hand. You can tell it’s been done manually, although probably after fretting and finishing it’ll be nearly invisible. But I imagine I would get far better results with either a good saw and miter box or a tablesaw configuration…

Now, I need to line up the board, cut it out and glue it to the neck. I’ll keep you posted.
