"You hit the nail right on the head when you said it’s far easier to do than explain, Taffy? But the straight edge down the neck technique is really easy, I know plenty of bonified luthiers & guitar techs that use it. Hope you fix it Brent!"

"I have only needed to do this once that I can recall, but I just filled holes with wood putty. If you can match the wood color even better. The box I had, I stained, so the filled holes are virtually invisible to most people"
