if you've the capacity to do that, then go for it. sounds like it would look great. i got my stuff from ebay, nothing fancy. I'll try and post a pic if i get a chance.
the only thing I am lacking is the dimensions which I guess I could take off the existing fretboard. The spacing of the "frets" etc. When I get back to work I will see what we have in aluminum laying around. Having a piece that thin that is not warped? I could order a piece of Mic6 jig plate and that would be flat enough. I know they are available in 1/4 thickness, I don't know how thin they make them, will have to take a look. I could probably get away with the 1/4 thickness?

I bought a piece of rosewood from David Dyke and put regular guitar frets and pearloid fret markers on.
