As I am sure is true for a lot of people who post here, I have scoured TDPRI and the Internet and thoroughly confused myself. My plan is to use Tru Oil as the finish. On an ash body, is that enough to get this look (although it may take a year to darken to this) or do I need to add some dye? Does it look like someone used a tinted grain filler first? If so, do I need to apply a coat of dewaxed shellac first, then tinted grain filler, and then the Tru Oil? Or am I missing a step? I do have a practice scrap of ash to practice on, but I'd like to get the steps right first. Is this about right? Can I skip any of the steps? Do I need to add one or two? 1. Shellac (I guess the point is to get the dye to "take" more evenly as ash can get blotchy) 2. Amber dye (but do I even need this (and if not, can I skip the shellac)? 3. tinted grain filler (although is this needed to match the below pic?) 4. Tru Oil (10-12 coats). Or should grain filler go on before the dye? And I realize the number of coats of filler depends on how rough or smooth I want the final result to be.
