Building Advice

Hello Everyone.I had a strange idea for a fretboard.Kinda like this picture here. switching the color with every fret and placing the fret wire on the edge of the color switch. I got a few pieces of Oak and Smoked Oak. Would something like that even work as a fretboard or should I get other types of wood?my idea was to put this about 1/4 inch thick on a Birchwood neck…See More
