Use a fireaxe....

Nah Nah.... J/k I think Corduroy has a better idea with the cloths iron over a soldering iron.... either way do what they said... Homework sucks but must be done!

A pair of wire cutters with the cutting end perpendicular to the handles then usually need to grind the end down so the cutting edge will be flush against the fret board. There is a ready made pair like this from stew mac but arent cheap. Then some heat to the fret wire so they come out easier.

Don't use wood putty!!!

Epoxy works well. Or if you get some very fine sawdust you could pack that in there and then put on a couple drops of superglue. I'd still go with epoxy.
Not taking any online orders.

Do not use wood putty or wood glue. You want to fill the slots with something that will not compress; otherwise, the pull of your strings will bow your neck forward, regardless of your truss rod adjustment. I can't recommend doing anything other than filling the slots with some sort of hard material. Acrylic, maybe.

Correction: it's a polymer. Adhesion is basically a party trick; its real value is as a resin.

Wood is your best choice.

Acrylic is cheaper, but harder to sand into the correct width.

Epoxy, in my opinion, is not the way to go.

There are several benefits to using wood. Not only will it keep the fingerboard from buckling under pressure, but it will also keep your tone solid and give you gorgeous markers for pitches on the fingerboard.
