Fretboard removal pt. 1

Time to move forward! For this task I'm using a tutorial found on the projectguitar site. The idea is to heat of the fingerboard with a household iron in order to loosen the glue holding the fingerboard to the neck. Like this:

This is supposed to require a lot of time and patience. Ok, lets give it a shot. Most of the time is consumed by waiting fot the steam to heat the wood the glue joint. Let's see if I can do this while working on my laptop in parallel.

Ha! Its really working!
Or I'm just cutting wood... hard to tell, but the first millimeters are lifting.

Ok, this is where I got after ~2 hours. 6 frets are off. Enough for today.
