Fingerboard/neck shaping
This is the last of the major things to do, finalising, gluing thefingerboard, shaping the neck!

Scrapings the bindings down needs to be approached carefully as there is only 1.5 mm between sanding too much. I actually turned off the camera and spent 1.5 hours plus scraping and sanding to get the bindings flush. I could have saved time by thicknessing the binding material 0.5mm thinner in the first place . If your order your bindings and router bits from a supplier like stewmac the fit will be perfect.

The neck shape is a very personal thing, I opt for a violin type of shape(C shape), though you can make it more of a D shape if you wish.
