The bindings are on, and i'm currently sanding the body smooth (surface prep). So that means I get to start the enjoyable task of finishing soon.
Since I want a satiny finish, here is what I was thinking of going with for a finish:
a) Pore filler (probably Enduro) for the neck and headstock overlay
b) Tru Oil finish over the pore filler
a) Pore filler for back and sides
b) KTM-9 (satin) for the top
First, is this a sufficient for finishing? Do I need a shellac washcoat on the bare wood prior to pore filling? It a washcoat necessary or will it make a difference if I don't use it? If I do need a shellac washcoat -- can I use shellac from a can or spray? Mixing and cutting seems a lot of work if it's done just for a washcoat.
Any other recommendations suggestions would be greatly apreciated!
P.S.: I have no idea why this post is being centered!
