Great video, the neck looks very professional. Top marks for filling the gap with a wood patch and not dust/glue filler. I think you’re being a bit ambitious with the star inlays it could all go horribly wrong and end up with the filler being a different colour to the wood. I try to scribe round the inlay with a sharp point and then cut with a craft knife to remove as little wood as possible, so if the colour is different it doesn’t show as badly. You could try a drop of black superglue on the underside of the fretboard which overhangs the neck and let it dry. It will give you an idea of the colour match.

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.
