Lap steel guitar: fretboard!
I’m not quite done with sanding and finishing it, but I did some work on my fretboard. I used superglue to glue veneer into slots for the frets. Since its a slide guitar it doesn’t need actual frets, so this was both cheaper and easier. The inlay dots are the cheapest plastic mother-of-pearl dots I could find. They look fine.
Question now is how to finish it. It’s padauk (how ever the heck that’s pronounced), which is a nice bright red wood with lots of big open pores. Maybe just some tung oil and I won’t worry about the pores?
