Fretting?.... finishes?

Recommended Posts

I'm making my first bass, and it is going well... I have black bindings around the body and the neck. But now it is time to start fretting, but I'm not sure in what order I should do this...

Is it better for me to put finishes on the fingerboard first before I start fretting? But because of the bindings I'm not sure how I should do this....

I have market and sawed for the frets.... anyone got any tips for me?
