Sobot Posted July 28, 2005 Report Share Posted July 28, 2005 (edited) I know little to nothing about finishing wood, but I started with whatever knowledge I have... what do you think? Saturday (last) - 1 coat of Polymerized Tung oil: back of neck/headstock, entire body. Sunday - lightly sand with 320 grit then same as Saturday Monday - Same as Saturday Tuesday - " " Wednesday - " " Today (Thursday) - " " Friday - " " Saturday - " " Sunday - " " Monday - lightly sand with 400 grit then final coat. ....after rubbing the excess tung oil off... leave it to completely dry for 2 days So how does that sound? 10 coats? Too little? Too much? Also... even though I masked off the fretboard (ebony), I end up getting some tung oil on the edges of the fingerboard. Is this a bad thing? Whenever I do, I try to rub it up as much as possible with a damp piece of an ol t-shirt (instead of a cloth), but there's always some left. Won't it just wear off the fretboard eventually? Thanks.
