Oil Finish And Plastic Binding


Recommended Posts

I am about ready to start finishing a neck, but am not sure yet what finish I want to use. I have either polyurethane or Danish oil. I would rather use the oil finish to get a nice thin and smooth finish, but am unsure about what to do with the binding. If I use the poly, I can just spray right over the binding to protect it. But I doubt the oil finish will do much good over the plastic. Any experience or advice on this would be appreciated.

Danish oil creates a great natural look, personally I love oil finishes, but I doubt it would cover the plastic (I am almost sure) . My recommendation would to use a shellac or a poly finish such as butchers wax over the danish oil. I like to steer away from poly but it will work over the plastic.
