Fretboard removal pt. 2

With a sharper tool the process is going much faster:

After only an hour of work with the knife and the iron, the fingerboard is off the neck. It came off pretty nicely in one piece, so its perfectly good for putting on some other guitar in the future.

I can now mark the outline for the first cut on the ebony board that will be used for this guitar. Once I'm finished with using that board as a fret slotting template for other fingerboard blanks, I will start shaping it for this guitar.
