|After sanding the body to 220 grit, I filled the grain with some neutral|
Timber Mate mixed with water.
|I brushed two coats of the soupy mixture over the entire body|
and allowed two hours of dry time between coats.
|After the Timber Mate had been allowed to fully dry, I sanded off the|
excess with 220 grit paper.
|Next, I vacuumed off the dust and brushed on a couple of coats of|
water-based lacquer thinned 1:1 with water. This layer of lacquer will
seal the surface and prepare it for the next step.
