I have bought some plans But.......I still have some question regarding the finger board

well I did start work on my E-Cello last night but soon found that my new(second hand band saw) blade was not up to cutting the walnut (recut is what I think they call it when you cut laminate strips)

So my attention was move over to a simple task of inspecting my newly arrived fingerboard and neck

Now my neck is part finished and looks good (scroll) but still needs a lot of work

on inspecting my fingerboard where it looks finished I still think it may be to thick, BUT what do I know I've never done one or even held a cello in my life, so hear are the dimensions of the fingerboard

starting at the end nearest to the peg box

Width 32.97
arc thickness bottom of flat to the top of the arc 12.61
Thickness of the side, this is the flat shoulder 9.01


and hear is the bridge end of the fingerboard

width 64.75
Arc thickness bottom of flat to the top of the arc 21.21
Thickness of the side, this is the flat shoulder 9.01

I have seen that their are flats along the length and a spot of light sanding will stand me in good stead.

will I need to have a flat on the C string ? (I think this is called Rhomberg)
I have read some where that both are fine and they both have pro's and con's
