You know, if you read the title of this post you might have all sorts of mental images. How does a fingerboard get holes in it? Moths? Lots of wear? Maybe a crazed lunatic with an electric drill?
Now that the neck is reattached, we don't want holes there any more.
So we fill them. I have some scraps and other hunks of rosewood around the Dungeon. A few seconds with the ROSS, and we have some nice rosewood dust.
Place some in the holes. I don't show it here, but I also packed the rosewood chips from the initial drilling onto the top of the fill.
Let it soak in.
I give it a couple hours to solidify. A large amount of CA takes a while to harden.
Scrapers are my new best friends. I'm finding all sorts of uses for them. Except I seem to have misplaced my small rectangular scraper. I recall tossing it in a tool chest drawer, but I can't find it. Dagnabbit.
Weren't there holes in the fingerboard?
I find one of the things I don't like about these jobs is I have to wait (a lot) for glue to dry. I try to do the gluing-up as last thing I do each night, so I can let it dry overnight.
