Here are a couple of tricks you can use to put the finishing touches on fretwork panels.

Tiny ridges, kerfs, and burns marks are common problems. Traditionally, small files (rifflers) are used for getting into the fretwork openings. But we found that a inexpensive modern diamond file works just as well, in some instances better. It has a round side and a flat side for both curved and flat edges.

As for applying a finish, we get into the tiny openings by dipping the panel in an oil finish. When dipping a fretwork panel, aluminum foil shaped into a tray acts as a reservoir for the oil finish. To remove the excess finish, you can blot the panel dry with a cloth or blow it out with compressed air.
