Been a big week and very happy with the result. 5 tenors and 2 concerts ready for bindings.

I'm looking at that fretboard on the far right. Have you put contrasting wood in there? Very cool looking, I'm not sure how a person would do such a thing. Very cool. Nice look.

Yes, that's Red Mallee Burl in ebony. A slightly better picture taken at the end of a very long day to show stopped fret slots.

Yeah really. This is at a whole nother level. Very nice. Just when I think I'm getting pretty slick with my fretboards I see something like this. I cannot do this! Beautiful!

CNC? I suspect the work is only done once eh Allen?

Yes. And a laser for cutting the burl inlay.

I had a motor drive fail on me a couple of weeks ago and had to put off making 7 fret boards because I couldn't bring myself to go back to fret slot jigs on the table saw. And that block inlay any other way is a complete PITA to do.
