I don't have, and don't plan to have, any spray or buffing equipment. I would appreciate a discussion of hand polishing various finishes. I have tried a lot from shellac, Tru-oil, wipe on Minwax poly, KTR-9 (?), Endurovar, etc. and would like to find a finish, or a method that will give me sightly (not a lot) more shine. What are the finishes and polishing techniques and products you all have settled on? nHow much time does it take?

Hi John,
Thank you so much for the kind offer I am going to try to put a sunburst on a guitar top and was wondering if this is something you have already done as a video?

Thanks in Advance,
Pat

In most cased Tite bond original will work but I have switched to West Sytems epoxy as the glue does a great job of filler voids to lost splinter of wood
Thanks for the link and great tips on using furniture repair pens.

John, RHayes just posted in another thread about allowing for springback in a bending form. I'd like to understand better how to do that BEFORE I make my next form. He also mentioned how different woods behave. (I'm using a Fox-style bender I made and your heating blanket and slats and controller). Bruce W.
