Neck Finshinf


Recommended Posts

HI Guys. I have 95% finished my neck. It is Ash with an American Oak fingerboard.

I am going to tung oil the fretboard.

I just want some confirmation on the neck. I would like it as smooth as poss.

From what I have read "grain filler" brings the rest of the wood up to the hieght of the grain, levels the timber


(Not having used it before, I just used to put lots of coats of varnish on my work until it felt level)

I want a nice natural finish so I was thinking of grain filling the neck with clear filler and then sand it with a

300-400 grit paper then start applying the varnish until happy.

Its the grain filling bit I'd like assistance on
