Bloody awful Bear! My fingers are always holey from building. Then you feel it when playing. Maybe that's how the blues was born.

We are NOT all made OR meant to fret guitars. At least if the guitar is ever stolen and ownership questioned all that will be needed is a DNA test lol.

How do you deal with stains on a fingerboard? Add more and say it was purposefully done ;)
