Decorative Binding - part 2

Here is the finished binding. I cut the ledge with a router where I could and finished it off with a scalpel and chisel. The holly strip was glued in with hide glue (I'm getting to like it!) and I finished it off by scraping flat.

I have been giving some thought to the fretboard which I will be working on next. I have decided to make it 4mm thick and to go with a 336mm scale length, and 22 frets. The top six frets will be on a narrow part of the fretboard that extends over the sound hole.
