Very cool Dave. Why would you remove the fingerboard and nut for finishing though rather than just tape them off?

Removing everything from the body of the instrument makes it easier to apply the finish. Traditionally this is brushed on, upwards of 30 coats of varnish.

Since I’m not even pretending to be an old master, I applied stain and gave it sever al coats of spray lacquer.
