I've found and read the few threads on making fretlines for a fretless bass, and went with a Warmoth preslotted fingerboard and StewMac purfling strips. The strips are an absolute perfect fit in the slots as far as thickness goes, but (of course) I've got a few questions. The purfling strips are straight and the fingerboard has a 10" radius. I clipped the strips with about an extra 1/2" on each end, which allows pressure to be applied at either end, and this bends them just right so that they accomodate the radius. But I don't have the time to glue one piece a day into the fingerboard and sit there for a few hours holding the strip in place. I'm thinking about using a rediusing board, lining it with (my new best friend) wax paper, and gluing maybe 8 strips at a time, laying the radiusing board on top with the paper in between, and then applying light clamp pressure which should hopefully press the purfling strips down into place (conforming to the radius). Think this is a workable approach? Second, I've been thinking so much about gluing super-strong joints and such that I've been very focused on using Original Titebond for my gluing needs. Should I back up and use a different glue for the purfling strips? And once glued, I was going to run some fine grit sandpaper lengthwise on the fingerboard (using the radiusing block) to slowly take off the tiny smidge of excess purfling sticking out of the slots. Would this also sand off any errant Titebond smears before taking off too much ebony? Any comments and life lessons are appreciated. Thanks!
