Inlay and Fretboard Radius

I hate radiusing fretboards. I’d rather pay someone to do it. LMII’s radiusing service is a joke and just gets you in the ballpark. Still a ways to go. Anyways I did that up to 600 and then applied a light coat of Danish oil and then some wax. I might have to deepens the slots a tad but the neck is all ready for fretting.

Also I decided that I’d slightly inlay the headstock steel emblem. I want it to stand a bit proud over the rest of the headstock. I feel it makes for something rather unique. It’s super intricate work to get it just right. But totally worth it.
