Ironically I CA glued my finger to the side of the neck right after this shot... then I had to reach the de-bonder but the neck was fastened to the table. So I got lucky and had a pair of pliers within reach that made it to the de-bonder. Took 10 minutes to get my finger clear.
BTW - West Systems epoxy is not effected by any regular solvents when cured...
Next body up is a single HB. Solved the HB route issues on the CNC by changing the single large route into 3 pieces.
Cocobolo fretboard done.
