    Interesting. Well so far so good for me. I just thicknessed up a fresh bit with no dramas. Need to go get my cutting guide printed.

    Man, as soon as I'm at a point where I'm confident with all my templates and processes I'll be all over it I'm planning on going to Malaney for a timber festival next year as well. Hoping to pick up some nice bits and pieces there.

    Weekend away so no real progress. I did go and have some fresh fret board templates printed. All the scaling is perfect so fingers crossed.

    Decided I'm not very happy with the bit I thicknessed. Might try and take a couple more mms off it. I think the glue residue in my rails is making it slightly out of whack.
