There’s nothing in the world of guitar building that I hate more than this. Now that I found a radius caul that matches the clamping caul I’ll just get my boards pre radiused and slotted. I don’t see a point in spending the time doing this. I might make a radius jig with Burris at the shop but we’ll see.
Either way it came out great. The Indian rosewood boards have this gorgeous jewel like purple hue with really nice highlights. I did the same as I did with the last fretboard using odie’s oil and steel wool. I also waxed the burl maple necks fretboard with trewax. Tomorrow I’ll do the same for this fretboard. Then it’s off to fret and drill inserts and peg holes.
