Need Finishing Suggestions - Variety Of Woods

Recommended Posts

Clearly, I didn't plan this part well enough. Second build is body with a back of Black limba/maple strip 1"/walnut strip 1"/maple strip 1"/black limba with a leopardwood top. Neck is Carnarywood. Pleased with the way it came out, but not sure how to finish. I prefer oil finishes. I am figuring the limba needs to be grain filled. Looking for suggestions on what to do when you have these different types of woods. Would the tru-oil sealer be enough for the limba and then I could go with tru-oil from there? Is the limba the only wood that needs to be filled? That is just my judgment examining them. How do you test or judge this? Thanks
