to worry, irritate (Dobby fretted constantly about Harry Potter's safety)
to corrode, eat away at something (acids fretted away the metal) (the ocean fretted away the shores)
to agitate (water fretted over the stones in the brook)
to decorate a surface with fret or fretwork

an irritated state of mind
erosion, corrosion, gnawing
a worn or eroded place
a ridge on the fingerboard of a guitar
an interlaced design, fretwork

Dobby fret a piece of wood with complicated fretwork to make a picture frame for his best friend, Harry Potter.
