    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    That looks pretty cool Ken. Looks like the easiest solution I've seen yet. Good thing he's got other sizes though as 12" seems a little radical for an uke.

    I understand he can supply other radii cutters to order...I came across him on the Aus/Nz luthier forum.

    Wow... This is a really interesting tool. Think of the other radiusing application possibilities: Head blocks, tail blocks, bracing... And custom too... Zip, zip, zip. No muss, no fuss... Thanks Timbuck, but has anyone tried it yet???

    The wood he used was thick and inflexible, I suspect it won't be as easy with a 4mm fretboard blank.

    I'm assuming you'd double stick the fret board to a more substantial piece of wood.
