    Not my cleanest job ever...but it is basically ready for filler around the pearl. The white lines are pieces of Teflon in the fret slots that will keep the filler from filling up the fret slots

    A heat gun set to low is a great way to get rid of air bubbles in fresh epoxy.

    Now to leave it cure until tomorrow

    It set up much quicker than expected...so I took most of it off...

    Now I WILL wait forat least a day. Then the epoxy will be as hard as the ebony. So far, I am happy with the results.

    Sanded with 80 grit to reveal voids. Touched up a few.
