I HAVE SELECTED the backs and sides and cut them to length-Cut the sides to width and am beginning to cut to proper shape before I sand them down to thickness- I sliced up that piece of lacewood on the bandsaw and now have three fretboard blanks for now and the future. I still have a chunk of lacewood un-sawn that I will save for future use of some kind. There are another three fret boards in it should I choose to use it that way. Very pretty and interesting wood. I also cut out a new Concert bending form that I need to sand smooth. I chose and cut out the three tops .Two Englemann Spruce and one cedar. Now I need to find some neck wood.
