Couple Noob Refinishing Questions


Recommended Posts

I just am finishing up sanding the body of an old kramer. Im not sure what to do with paint and grain filler. What kind of grain filler is the best? can anyone hook me up with exactly what I will need to get, brushes, fillers, paint. Can I get it all from stew mac? whats the best type of grain filler. can I use a spray bottle for paint? Whats the best paint? I'm going to paint it black.

Also, I dont even know if i need a grain filler. can anyone tell me what kind of wood this is?

Nobody can seem to agree on the type of wood it is.

Usually if the wood needed grain filler, they would have put it on when they painted it. It doesn't look very pitted though like mahogany, so you might be in the clear.
