I needed a different fretboard for a neck I want to make. It is different than the ones I made this past summer on the Xcarve. This is one approach to making it. First off I am making it out of walnut. I like quartersawn fretboards. In this case I am using a walnut turning square I got off of Amazon and I'll resaw a blank out of it. Usually these turning squares are cut so you can get close to vertical grain out of them. Ordering off the net sight unseen is a bit trickier, but this one worked out. The turning square is a bit over 3 x 3 x 24. It came jointed and surfaced to these dimensions for 37 dollars shipped. That will yield 6-7 fretboards or a neck and a couple fretboards.
