Ukulele Build Part 3

Here is the ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl inlays.  The fret slots were cut with a .020 slitting blade in my Byrnes table saw so everything is good, square and true.  I used a dremel with the Stewart Mac base to make the inlay recesses (please see the inlay post on this blog for more details).  I also used a down cutting bit to level the MOP to the fingerboard after the epoxy dried.  This saved a lot of hand finishing and time plus it protected the finger board from sandpaper dings in the leveling process.  The other photo is of the head and tail blocks for the body.
