Ordered some ebony (actually a headplate) to use for the end graft.  It arrived this morning.  Used the T bevel to etch out the shape on the butt, sawed and chiselled out down to the end block.  Shaped the ebony end graft piece then thickness sanded down in the Luthier’s Friend.  Used some BWB for accent, glued, then hammered in.


After a couple of hours of dry time, trimmed off the excess, then scraped down smooth.
