[Solved] How to profile a radiused fretboard
I bought a radiused and slotted fretboard from LMII but it doesn't have a taper, is there a recommended way to put the taper in? I'm guessing I want to mark the taper and rough cut it on the bandsaw but is it possible to profile it with the router or do I need to sand down the rest? I have access to a planer as well but I'm worried it would rip out at the fret slots.

On my three builds so far I've used Mark's pre radius slotted tapered fretboards so can't offer any hands on advice. I think though, that with my experience with routers so far, I'd be concerned about the router chipping the slots too.
I ended up in the exact same place, except, I was the idiot who created the board from a blank, and radiused it before I cut the taper... Mark's solution is how I handled it... successfully so far.
