Completed the fretboard and headstock channelling after receiving new end mills.  The headstock work came out extremely well, and after losing a piece of shell for the fretboard (oh, it’s on the floor somewhere, but I need a better set of eyes to find it) I whipped up some black epoxy and koa dusted epoxy and inlaid the shell.

The fretboard looks gooey now, but aggressive sanding will result in a gap free surface.



The headstock inlay place well, and very minor gaps will hopefully be invisible.  I used koa dusted epoxy, and although the headstock looks stained, it should sand out.
