I recently discovered some of the shops that sell cigars have scraps of thin veneer that comes in the Oliva cigar boxes.  Cigar smokers use them to light their cigars avoiding a chemical taste.  I grabbed a few to use on my head stocks to hide the (scarf) joint on top.  I use water based contact cement to glue them on.   Then I glue my side pieces so they are the same depth.   I also used one on a factory neck to hide the manufacturer name.

Make your scarf joint in the opposite direction, the joint will be under the fret board.
