Filing the Edge of the Frets

Here is a block that I routed at a 90° angle that would receive my file, I can run the wood over the frets.

Once sanded flush I routed another channel at a 25° angle to round over the sharp edges.

I did have one fret that wasn't seeded perfect (not shown) so I glued and clamped the fret and that fixed the problem. However it really cut into the amount of work I could get done.

Removing the extra wood on the side of the neck. I'm using this cute little Stanley file (one of many) that Creig purchase at a yard or estate sale. Thanks for letting me use all these planes!

Sides mostly planed off. Will start rounding the back off soon.
