  1. Hi, i used an oil finish on my guitar and the three first coats goes well. I let dry several days between each coats. But since the fourth coat, after 15 days, the surface of the guitar stay sticky. I'm even be able to mark the finish just with little taps with the flat of my nails!!! Do I have to wait longer for drying (the last few weeks have been very wet), reapply oil and wipe off immediately (reactivate the solvent) or sand everything and start again? Thank you for your help!!! Best regards,
  2. tru-oil on bare wood (about three coats) then use water based timbermate grain fill finally finish with 6-9 more coats of tru-oil i'm gonna test on scrap, but i don't see why it wouldn't work. the oil based (tru-oil) shouldn't react with the water based filler... or WILL IT???? i am NOT interested in the "sand tru-oil slurry grain fill" method. :-) love u guys! hug and kisses XOXOXOXO thanks!!!!!!
