Bearing Up!

I was hoping to show you some photos of the twin-point fully bound, but just as I started to route the rebate for the bindings, the bearing on the router cutter decided to fail so, work has stalled on that front whist waiting for a replacement to arrive. I was reminded of the poem “For want of a nail”!

So, this mandolin is going to need a fretboard isn't it? I’ve had in stock for about 15 years, this large chunk of ebony and with the binding on hold, it made sense to finally tackle it!

I cut a comparatively small billet from one end and managed to re-saw it into 4 very nice fretboards. One for the twin-point and three for stock.
Better find something else to do now..........
