This is a simple sled to avoid ANY snipe. It’s probably been done before but I had a real need for a pristine cut yesterday. My thicknesser is adjusted as well as I can do it. The beginning and end cut are minimal and for most work is inconsequential. I couldn’t tolerate any deviation with these fb’s because they are very close to the final length already.
My Queensland Walnut was only big enough to yield two fingerboards and four headstock / backstrap veneers. This bit of machining will allow sequential grain match of the fb and headstock.
