This will be my first attemt with a bass body. It will be a hollowbody mahogany bass with acoustic guitar Western Red Cedar soundboards, however, the top will be covered by a pepperwood burl veneer. I'll also add white binding on the top's contour.
I don't have a dust controlled environmet here so I figured that cotton applied TruOil will be the easiest, fool-proof way of doing this.
I wish to really enhance the depth and contrast of the grain using dyes without going too far away from the original color of the wood, and to reach a moderatly glossy smooth finish with TrueOil.
Correct me if my thinking is wrong.
I really liked the way this guy uses the amber and black dyes to enhance the grain
, but don't know how it will work with the woods I'm using.
I'm a bit confused about pores filling and sealing in this process.
Your advice about filler, sealer, which dyes to use and how is required, and the order of application of this whole process.
Forgive me, as my main language is not Enlish and I'm efforting myself to understand both a totaly new process and confusing terms in English.
