adding a headstock overlay

By the way, the little piece of wood on top of the peghead is a "headstock" not "headstalk." Ok, I am off my high horse now.

Anyway, here is how I am adding an inlaid overlay to the headstock of a banjo uke. This piece is ebony with a small pearl inlay with our logo on it.

Here is my new plexiglass template, which is far better than the wood template that is next to it.

After I trace and rough cut on the bandsaw it looks like this.

Next, I sand the end where the nut will go at an angle on the belt sander.

yup, its clamped. Wait 3 hours and I can trim it again to fit.
