First and last True oil

Hi All,

Well after my first True Oil, I'm convinced I won't use the process for finishing anymore. From 5' away, the finish is flawless, glossy like a Mother, looks good... untill you inspect it 1 foot away and see the lines in the finish, or the dust particles. I used micro mesh etc. and have come to the conclusion, that I got it as good as I think I could get ANY "wipe-on" finish...except french polishing (which I have done before, but always looking for the easier way). So that's where I'm headed on the classical I'm building now. Will post some pictures very soon.

Hi Dave,

Long ago, (I am too lazy for French polishing these days) I did some French polishing using Behlens padding lacquer. I found it to be a little easier to use than shellac and it did not tint the wood as much. Just a thought.
