I found a piece of oak just the right length in the wood pile so the door threshold fingerboard will wait for another project. Went ahead and glued the oak on. Not quite sure how I will finish it. Maybe just clear lacquer but the plans do say to dye it black. I still need to radius the fingerboard so I might stain it ebony after I radius it and then cut and sand it to the neck width to give it some faux binding.
