Busy day today... After making and shaping the dovetail neck shim and gluing it in, I turned my attention to the fretboard extender. ( this is the piece that will hold the fretboard over the soundboard). I had to start the binding channel in this area since it would have been really hard to achieve at a later stage.
Technically I jumped over the binding step... In order to test the integrity of the instrument. Once the instrument is tested, I will add the binding around the soundboard and the backboard.
I then glued the fretboard extender and cut all the fret slots in the Ebony fretboard...
Today was a good day!
