    Fret end file mount

    In the luthier tool category, here is my tool for filing the end of frets on a fretboard :

    This is a pretty classical design, it uses a standard flat sharpening file.

    The groove is cut on the table saw.
    The screw holes are tapped directly in the wood.
    The woods comes from a scrap piece of furniture and the bottom is varnished, which happens to be more slippy.

    I really like the varnish detail, Christophe. Never would have thought of that.
