Dead Key Fobs

Postby cSuttle » Mon Jul 08, 2013 4:42 pm

I know a little off topic, but ...

Normally when I'm making inlay everything turns out great. But ... I'm human so now and then I make mistakes. I had a wolf fretboard go astray on me and it had to be trashed. However, I hate throwing away great looking inlay. So today I cut out the 5th fret and turned into a key fob.

This is Real Mammoth Ivory on ebony. What do you guys think, would anyone what to buy these?

That's a pretty good response in a half a day. I was thinking $50 for the main frets (1-12), and $40 for the lower frets (15-24). Does that sound reasonable? I have ten frets and right now none of them are spoken for. So if there is a fret you'd like contact me at the web-site in my profile. The first fret (the bird) is Mother of Pearl, like on the wolf all the rest are 50,000 year old Mammoth Ivory. I'm not into dead elephants.

Maybe put holes in both ends and make it a necklace for our Kind Sisters.

Yeah, I haven't thought about that. The Bird would make a nice necklace.

The upper left is the 3rd fifth fret, the upper right is the 12th. The one in the middle is the 9th and the bottom one is the 5th. The 5th fret is not spoken for yet.
