Grain Filling with Wood Wise Brazilian Cherry
Watching this closely. My #1 for about 25 years has been a home-built one-piece-mahogany. So far I've only ever oil finished it but lately been thinking about stripping it down and trying something blonde or blue.
2B2 - I've got a better idea of what you did with that last pic, and man that's cool. Looks like we may have been on similar paths this weekend. I started some contours
I'm going whole hog on this Chestnut one and the redwood one, Deluxe style. Thinking about making some special WRHB like pups for one or all of these.
bullfrogblues started a piney thread which got me longing for some blanks I started a few years ago a very, very old pine beam left in the rafters of the garage. I just went pine nuts
I should have taken a pic of the Strat when she was finished, something about those curves ... I can't wait to get a finish on this old school 2 tone burst but not as heavy as say a 70's model.
Now returning to your regularly scheduled thread . . .
I love the mustang btw!
I'm stoked on this build! Any solid plans for color?
Look at all those sexy curves, kind of looks like a chorus line!
One coat lacquer sanding sealer, and it looked so good.
So now I just want slap it together and play it for awhile first.
But must press on to color...
Well I have toying with the idea of TDPRI 'Web Page Beige'
I know I swore I was painting everything surf green forever, but I really want...
Oh yeah, I've been feeling the same way.....
Nice, a BSB that's secretly a Mahogany tone monster. Before to long you go all Keef on it
I know that feeling, can I put it together now?...how about now? ..... Now?!
If I didn't enjoy finishing as much as cutting and shaping I might actually finish some of my builds faster!
On my first build, I completely assembled it. (without any wiring) Then, I decided to do a "quick setup" and see how it played. Then, I hung it on the wall where the "daily" (Mex Strat) hangs. One day, I went to plug it into the amp and play a bit and realized that I hadn't even drilled the jack hole to the switch cavity yet. Lol. Seemed very odd to be pulling it back apart to do the finishing and wiring.
LOL, I like working the wood too, I find finish and setup hard, but I'm getting better
I'm just kidding, I know you love em all.
Ha Ha, sounds like something I would do. Have done.
It could happen.
A quick spray of the neck pocket and up on the painting 'stick and screw combo'.
Last one was the toe picture and I almost missed it.
I wanted the light buttery side of butterscotch but I think the mahogany darkness made it darker.
At least its a thin skin paint job.
Then this Mosquito flew over the fumes fainted and crashed.
This pictue is staged. When I picked him off all I got was head and body, the legs stayed. I named her mojo and now her parts are part of it.
The joy of spraying outside.
Looks awesome!...It's my favorite Tele color! . . . I flippin hate when that happens!
Whoo hoo! Traditional yeller is a good color
Come Watco Lacquer hurry up and dry
Ain't no fun waiting for paint to dry but it is fri. TGIF
Fwiw, and I'm by no means an expert on the subject, but it seems like all the projects I've used lacquer on have cured faster under an incandescent light.
