All we lack on George's tenor is the French Polish.
The final tasks, trimming and rounding the last two frets. This baby is built.
But first we had to use this tiny file to smooth up the ends. You know those unwanted credit cards you receive in the mail. They make handy guards when taped on to protect the top from a slip of the file.
And then drill the holes for the tuners with the old fashioned hand drill.
And then uniting the auger to make the tapered hole that the Peghed tuners fit into.
By now, the glue had dried on Rich's fretboard and it is time to start shaping the neck with the rasp.
Thats all for now folks, Santa Claus is coming tomorrow night and there won't be any work in the workshop for a while. Hope he comes to your house.
