Yes, of course.

But a question: Do you guys do any roughening of the bottom of the fingerboard so the epoxy has something to grab? I made a knife out of a saw blade once that I just epoxied the scales on and one of them fell off after a few months. I didn't really know anything about epoxy at the time. Anyway, that's partly why I'm scared of the stuff now.

Yes, Gene. See this discussion http://www.mimf.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1359&start=0 and near the end on its second page you'll see Mario show some photos of how he does that.
