Haven't posted anything for a few days, life gets in the way ocassionally.
Had a lot of problems with the neck and nearly gave up but need something to do so the insanity doesn't get too big a hold. Managed to wack is some frets and sort of shape the ends so they don't rip off the ends of the fingers too much, and drilled some tuner holes and final shape the back of the neck.
Normally this would all be done in one day or less but the motivation levels are really down at the moment. Put in the fret markers and side dots and put on the first coat of Tru-Oil on the back of the neck.
I think I've stuffed up the finish on the fret board, this is the first time I've done a fingerboard without Armorall and it looks way too soft and unmanagable for my liking.
Among you learned gentlemen and ladies which is the best method to refinish the fretboard with the frets in? By the way the fishing line trick was good and removed most of the waste but a higher breaking strain which better filled the slots would have been a lot better.
