Did try both, Toothpick and Bamboo Skewer Frets many years ago, but for some reason didn't like them!, might have to give them another try!  :-)

Thanx Lonman, a quick dirty coat of stain across the frets was all it took?

Comment by BrianQ. on December 8, 2019 at 2:28pm

Thanx uncle, feeling festive since it’s a Xmas gift :D

Yes Dave, I file slots first, then a quick scuff of the toothpicks with fine sandpaper, I always use Titebond on all my wood projects? 

Comment by Lonman on December 8, 2019 at 1:00pm

Good question Dave. Nice photo background.

Do you slot the neck any to set the picks? What glue do you use BQ. ?
