Humped fingerboard

(Customer's Reviews)

I purchased a fingerboard for my first violin, which I'm building using only hand tools--no power tools. As this is a learning process, it is taking a long time to complete. Time is not a great factor, and it's a good thing. My fingerboard arrived with a 2mm hump and a corresponding 2mm cup on the bottom. This suggests that while it was machined properly it warped during storage. Flattening the bottom and eliminating the hump (and adding 1mm cup) has been another time consuming learning experience. Maintaining the proper arch is easy enough as I have a scraper of the proper radius. All this having been said, I'm very satisfied with the quality of the wood. Nobody expects organic materials to be perfect, and if this is the worst thing that happens on this project then I'm happy.

Flat "bottom" surface twisted. Top square? What a pain. Will make do.
