    Most of the neck carving is done, It still needs some tweaks at the "volute" and body joint.

    They are not dressed and crowned yet, I'll do that at a later stage.
    But regarding your question, I do have some "specialised" tools to crown frets but I alway end up using triangular files that I've modified to do that job.
