If so, what is the best product? I will a shellac wash coat and waterbased lacquer as the final finish.

Freeman,

I haven't used koa back and sides, but I have used koa for bindings and end grafts. Definitely needs to be filled if you want a glassy smooth finish. I don't know that Koa requires anything special for pore filling. I used whatever pore filler I was using on the body.

Thanks Ken. The feeling at MIMF was that koa did need to be filled and epoxy is probably the best thing to use. I'll experiment on some scrap.
