FABRICATION

Richlite machines with standard tooling, just like working with hardwood.

All Richlite-to-wood mating surfaces must be abraded or scored for proper adhesion (100-150 grit recommended).

Fret slots can be cut with carbide cutters or diamond tooling. Due to the hardness of Richlite versus natural wood material, fret slots must be cut slightly wider.

Richlite can be left with an unfinished satin finish or brought to a high-polish finish with buffing compound, as desired.
