Sharpened my new old gouges, then every single plane blade I have, then every scraper.

Slow but sure. Solid ebony neck truss channel routed and fitted. Getting ready for some inlay and fret slots.

Sidetracked by a Facebook marketplace score, three old skool rack units for $25 the guy thought were dead. Replaced battery, replaced two small caps and reset a ribbon cable and all works great. Going through hundreds of presets of too much chorus, too much gated reverbs, etc. Awesome 80-90s goodness.

Here’ my fretboard / crosscut sled. Waxed oak rails, Stewmac blade with stabilizer plates, Stewmac notched template for 25” scale. Double stick tape. One pic shows how I line up the template on the bottom and then stick the blank on from the top so I can get it square and see where the cutline is. Flip it over and cut as you move it up the notches. Perfect and fast.

Too cool man. I'm sure it'll cause you to get into more mischief now you're bought in 😉

Did rough fretboard radius and started drilling “stars”. Have a new design instead of the 12th fret inlay, sort of a negative space black hole planet thing.

Had 5 carbide bits, broke all in short order, they are only .040”. Found 40 on ebay for $10 so I figure that’ll get me through the board LOL.

I need to get this pig done soon so I can spray while I still have some weather. Life has been SO busy.
