Donut Man Posted March 28, 2008 Report Share Posted March 28, 2008 1. Is is possible to taper an Ebony or Flame maple fretboard with handtools? Maybe with sandpaper/sander and a plane? 2. Providing I can end up with a tapered fretboard, is it possible to shape the neck without a router also? ie. maybe using a spokeshave and a plane to get it level with the pre-tapered fretboard? 3. Does anyone in the UK sell pre-tapered and slotted Ebony or Maple fretboards? (I know David Dyke Luthier Supplies does them slotted, but I don't know if he can taper them, anyone know?) If all else fails I guess I'll just taper everything with my router, its just that I dislike using routers in general, and try to avoid it as much as possible.
