    FYI, be careful with that radius block.
    I made one years ago about the same as yours.
    While it does create a nice rounded shape, it does flatten out a hair between the screws and the outer edges (at least mine did when compared to a template).
    Makes more of an elliptical shape than a perfectly round shape
    Long story short, 100% OK to use as long as you don't plan on using a stew mac fret press for installing frets... then you may have issues getting the frets to seat in some areas.

    Looking very cool so far!

    Yeah, I can see that it isn't a perfect radius. I made my block nice and wide, so the curve seems pretty consistent as it was only using the center part of the block. It doesn't really flatten out between the screws because i glued the whole thing up with a dowel clamped down the center to hold everything in place. thanks

    The neck on that one is fast.

    Speaking of necks...
    Drew on a centerline and go; working each side gradually in with a rasp. I can see why people enjoy this part of a build. Won't go much thinner than pictured here. Just a bit over 1 inch at the first fret.

    For side dots you can use toothpicks.

    Nice work, keep on!
