Tips for making a Fretless Finger Board?

I received a guitar from a friend who basically ripped off the fret board on the guitar, so I was just going to replace it and make a fretless one. I was just wondering if there's anything I should be aware of while making it.

It's a 25.5 inch scale, probably 400mm radius, I want to use an ebony board but open for better choices

Thanks for the help!

There's not much to say, seeing as all you'll have to do is skip the fretting part of making a fretboard. In my experience, it's all about having the right tools.

Do you have any previous experience?

Nope! at least no wood working guitar related, I plan on practicing a bit on some extra pieces laying around first
