  1. Hey all,

    I am starting to finish a warmoth bass body. I'm very excited, because I've never done anything like this before. I read that before filling the grain (ash body), it helps to seal the wood.

    Is minwax wood hardener good? The can says it preps wood for filling... Is this product vastly different from a vinyl sealer (a product frequently mentioned to prep the wood for filling)?
