Frettin' and stainin'

Hello all! Newbie over here working on my third build which will be my first fretted neck. Super happy with my neck shape and fret board and was just wondering... In y'alls experience, are there any pros and cons to the order of cutting and installing the frets and staining the neck and board?  Intuition tells me to fret first, stain second. Just figured I'd ask to see what y'all have to say on the matter.  Thanks.See More

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
First off, the absolute satisfaction of creating a musical instrument that has never existed before! Even though there are a multitude of cigar box guitars, or washboards out there, never before was there one exactly like the one I made with my own hands. I LOVE the process! Figuring everything out as I go, embracing my mistakes and ignorance and making some beautiful ugliness come to life is fantastic. Plus... they're just cool as all get-out!
