Finish For Rosewood Parts

Recommended Posts

I'm making some rosewood pickup rings, tuner buttons, etc.

How would you finish these? I was thinking I would just sand/polish with fine micromesh and maybe apply some fingerboard conditioning oil.

Good enough, or should I look at something like Tru-oil or shellac?

Thanks for your input. :D

Sorry for hyjacking this thread but can you use stewmac vinyl sealer over dyed wood then go strait to clear, or is it only good to use with solid colours?

Yes. It's actually Behlen's, and it is designed to be used as a base for their stringed instrument lacquer.

Some guys here prefer to skip the sealer and go straight to the clearcoat.
