Not so much progress last week, but I did buy a new fret slotting saw: a Japanese fret saw! It’s the best upgrade ever! From a small saw that had a lot of binding, which made fret slotting a nightmare, to a saw that easily slides through Ebony. I wish I bought it in the first place:

Next steps are routing for the binding and installing the pearl position marker dots.
