« Part 1: Tuner Head Inlay Part 2 of Walnut Guitar series no next part

I received an email stating that my truss rod was delayed in mail, so I cannot move as fast as I was expecting to on this portion. But it did give me a chance to go pickup a piece of maple for the fretboard and lay it out to give me the best look. The maple has a little curl to it, so hopefully once I get it polished out It will look real sharp with the contrasting walnut neck.

Also, i have cut out blocks that I will start gluing up to create a radius-ed sanding block for the fretboard, it will have a 12” radius. It is cut out of 6 MDF pieces and once I glue it and true it, I’ll have a stable block to get the board just perfect.

And here is a shot of my helper :)
