Ebony Chipping

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm trying to deepen some fret slots on an ebony fretboard, but small chips are coming out at the ends, now I have titebone, ebony dust, and black superglue, and I'm thinking its probably best to just use the superglue for small things like these? As its quick to dry?

Its only the ends of the slots that need to go deeper (to follow the radius) so shall I do all one side of the slots, then turn the neck round and do the other side so that I am always cutting towards the center of the fretboard and should minimise chipping?

Is there anything I can do to avoid it? Like running a peice of masking tape down the side of the fretboard or something?
