The ol' box fan with furnace filter as a dust collector works great, as you know.
But if you did not know, here's a pic. Low-tech but does the job.
Yep, I tru-oiled the back first, after trying it on scrap; now I'm working on the sides.

Yep, EIR from KMG. Still have to put a few more coats on, but I'm going to get the sides caught up with the back first.

I see some bulls eye shellac there, I used it too for a sealer. but since I've read most guys stay away from it. Its to late for me now, but still as a sealer is it really that bad. we will find out. I found some seal shellac made by zinsser at the paint store . com for 8.75 I think I'll buy some to try and see if there is any diff. the way that is some nice looking wood and clean binding, good job.

The shellac sanding sealer is different stuff than the shellac, and from some of the pros, works substantially better. I have never had a problem with it, and its been used on every guitar I have made.

Cool dust collector, should use that in my office during the winter.

The dust collector is brilliant only matched by that beautiful guitar body!
