I've never worked harder on a fretboard, and with no frets! 😳 But today they met Helmsman 😁

And the back 😃

Next stop, cloth 💕

Trimmed and coated with Polycrilic, gluing the top cloth is next 😁. Then will varnish the back and headstock. After that I guess we'll see lol 😂

Varithane on back, sides and headstock. Also working out the hardware, which is harder than it looks

Second coat on back and top. I think that may be enough 😉

Now to cut the pickup route a little deeper and line everything up. Will have to wait until payday to get my birch dowels, then the REALLY tedious part begins 😩

Mounted the nut and prepared the pickup and jack (still need some orangewood dowel, cut off wooden spoons are great 😃)
