jonnyfontaine Posted January 21, 2008 Report Share Posted January 21, 2008 what is the best way to cut a pre-slotted, radiused fretboard to width? in the past i have done it with a table saw and a tapering jig... but the fretboard always had a slight tearout right behind some of the fret slots (a small triangle) it was not too noticeable and the fret covered most of it, but i'm just afraid that eventually it could tear a huge chunk out and ruin the board? i've been tossing around the idea of setting up a jig with my router but since it's radiused i figure setting this up might take a lot of time, or with a band saw... or just get close to width and they hand plane it to final dimension... what has or hasn't worked for you guys? thanks, jonny *oh yeah, it's an ebony fretboard Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
