I used BLO on the fingerboard. I also use lemon oil when cleaning them more regularly. Thanks!

How long is the flush trim bit? Did you flip the body over to remove what looks like a lip around the perimeter? Very nice work sir!

No, I have a long spiral-fluted flush trim bit (3" I believe")...the lip you see may be just the template that photographs funny. I try to use a spindle sander to get the outline as close as possible so that the trim bit is just taking the last shaving and leaving a smooth surface. Using the router table is the scariest thing for me, so I try to keep it to a minimum!
