    Made a 1/4 template about a 1/2 shy of the perimeter of the body so I could slide my routing jig over the fret board , I cut the binding channel to match the existing one and then ran it around to clean up all nice and consistent [​IMG] [​IMG] Got the new binding installed[​IMG] [​IMG] Now the scaping comes next
