I'm planning a Warmoth build, and have my heart set on a Padouk top laminate on an Alder body. Or perhaps a Padouk top laminate on a Swamp Ash body, although some folks have told me Swamp Ash is a real bitch to finish because it's so porous ...which leads to my actual question: I'd like to do a Tru-Oil finish, both because I like the way oil finishes look, but also because I'll be doing the finishing myself and I'm an idiot, so I don't want to take on a project that's too involved or time-consuming. Hence I'm happy to go with Alder since I've heard it takes Tru-Oil very easily and doesn't require any grainfill prior to the oil. But I've heard mixed messages on how the Padouk will work with Tru-Oil. Can I do a Tru-Oil finish on Padouk without requiring grainfill? Are there advantages to using grainfill prior to the Tru-Oil on a Padouk body top? ...or disadvantages to not using grainfill? Anything special or additional I need to know about Tru-Oil and Padouk before I start wiping on coats? Thanks.
