Fretting

9 of 36 frets pressed in... I'm knackered. The uke in front has a cork block and a piece of scrap wood clamped to the neck, and I use the screw clamp to press the frets in.

I cut them to length first, then shape their ends to a near parabolic shape. The tang is cut back so it won't come out if the neck shrinks a bit. It is hard, slow, tedious work. But it's fun as well.

I really can't wait to string these three up.
