For me it s too exacting a process to risk screwing it up so every time I ve done it (only 2 times) I ve used a commercial product like Stew Mac.

Yeah, I was debating going that way, but figured of all of the complex pieces needed, the fretboard is one of the ones I should actually be able to make if I just use some patience

Maybe if you could just do practice fretboards but they’re done after it’s put on the neck and that’s too much work to remove and re-do for me. If I was doing guitars that would be the jig I’d buy. Every Luthier I know uses commercial ones.
