2012 TDPRI Tele Build Challenge - Radiusing the Fretboard

Not much to report, just finished radiusing the fretboard to 14". I started with 80 grit sandpaper for the heavy sanding, then progressed through to 400 grit. Looking at the fretboard now, I'm back to believing that this is curly maple. And I'm leaning towards putting a shellac finish on it. Here are the photos of the progress.

One minor concern, it's looking like I will have to re-saw the fret slots just slightly deeper to accommodate the frets.
