I'm not sure what wood it is but it would make sense for it to be white oak since it is a wooden barrel lid. I didn't think about shellac. Good idea. Is there any particular brand or would regular spr ...

I flipped around the interwebs and I saw some things about bad yellowing. Any experience with boat varnish? Especially how would I prep? It's not like I can sand down to prep since I want to keep what ...

This is actually non guitar related but thought you all might have some tips. I have this wooden keg lid (wooden barrel style keg) that has a Caffrey's Irish Ale logo painted on it. My wife and I want ...

Thanks C5000! I was intending on a natural finish with black pickup covers and pickguard but had to hide where I patched a boo boo in the neck pocket with a sunburst. I don't like black or cream with ...

The one thing I've heard about Korina vs Mahogany, and YouTube videos have seemed to confirm this if that counts for anything (I'm not able to do a good apples to apples comparison on guitars by mysel ...

Really nice job! I tried epoxy as a grain filler before. Never again. It shrunk on me and you can now see the grain in the finish. Slight but you can see it. The finish was glass smooth after I first ...

That's what I'm tempted to do but just wanted to double check before it's too late. Mark, have you tried Korina and Maple on a short scale length guitar?

It feels great!! Can't believe that I actually built it. It certainly was a learning experience. I screwed up plenty of times but was able to fix everything. The reason I did a burst? I screwed up the ...

I have a slab of Korina about thick enough for a one piece Les Paul Standard (it's maybe 1/8" thinner than Les Paul body after you glue the maple top). I'm toying around with making a one piece G ...

Fast forward a year and a half and it's done! fought fisheye issues for months and had to settle with using a preval. Didn't stop to think about asking Bill if he could add fisheye flow out to his rer ...

When I painted my neck on my sunburst DC LP Special I was originally going to shoot the neck like gibson did with the old juniors with just a bit of born at the heel. I couldn't get it to look right ( ...
