whoofnagle Posted September 5, 2005 Report Share Posted September 5, 2005 I have a body that is a koa top and an ash body. After reading previous posts, I think I am going to try the tru-oil and naptha method for my finish. This will be a first for me. After much reading I still have a few questions: 1. I assume that like the ash - the koa does not need to be grain filled. (I plan to head to the MIMF forum and do some reading there next). 2. I have sanded the body to 220, wetted it- to raise the grain, and then resanded to 220. Do I need to go to 320, 400, or beyond before applying the first coats of oil?
