Oh I know that feeling. The "can't leave well enough alone" theory....lol.
If it was a clean break, you could glue and use it and never see the "line". Ask me how
I know, lol.
Good work so far. Keep at it!
I respect your progress and refusal to "give up." Especially nice custom inlays.
Great recovery on the binding. Binding work is nasty work and using the special "glue" even
adds to all that mess. I didn't enjoy my 1st binding job at all, lol.
As for that fret slot, however; when I cut my first board I had a couple "jacked up" slots
and I was like you thinking, "aw, it won't matter". Truth is, they bugged me to death and
eventually I had to fix them. It's nowhere near as difficult to correct that, should you choose
to do so. Just take some rosewood sawdust, mix it into glue and fill the slot. Then, when
it's fully dry, resand and recut the slot straight. You'll be much happier with it down the
road. Or, don't fix it and that's perfectly all right too, lol. Either way, build is coming along
great so keep at it.
