above: Ebony fret board with vine inlay is prepared, thicknessed, tapered, radiused, and inlayed in that order. Board is set into our slotting machine referenced to a centerline. above: Box sealing tape is placed over the inlay so that if a piece should come loose the saw blade won't throw it across the shop never to be found again. By leaving the tape extra wide, (pen marks) Removing the tape is much easier. above: binding is now being installed to finish up.
