Hi! As we already had a thread about the many ways people apply an oil-finish, I'm interested in how many different methods and what ingredients people here use for clear finishes. With my bass project having an ash back, I think I'll have to apply a hardcoat - otherwise, I'd just go danish oil-finish. So I'm curious as to what people here think which is the best method. How do you prepare the surface? What do you use: polyurethane, nitrocellulose, furniture laquer, etc? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the lacquer type you use? What is your favourite method of applying? Thanks in advance!
