Wood Type?

Recommended Posts

Great, Thx.... I did a search also on Yahoo and didn't find much, I may have been looking the wrong direction though.

I will check through the tutorials, I'm sure that I will need to apply an oil based Grain filler and Sand & Sealer to it before I use any dyes etc.

Thx for the info.

Youi know that unless you're going to do a transparent finish ( which is wasted on basswood anyway, since it has no visible grain pattern), you don't have to strip the body, right? You can simply scuff the existing finish and paint right over it. Saves lots of time, use the factory finish as primer, scuff it with a ScotchBrite (take the gloss off so the paint will adhere) and start your color coats.
