If you want to skip the backstory, head to the last paragraph. Here's the situation: I just got my new warmoth neck (maple/rosewood) for my frankenjazz back from my brother in law who painted the headstock and body matching red with auto paint (more on that in a later thread). Finishing the back of the neck has fallen to me. After considering Tru-oil (not available near me) and Tung oil (my preference, but voids the Warmoth warranty) I decided to go with Minwax Satin wipe on poly. After completely taping up the headstock face and fingerboard last night, I've applied two coats on following the process below 1) 0000 steel wool rubbing 2) tack cloth 3) brief second dusting with a sprits dampened cloth 4) application and rubbing in of poly 5) wait 2-3 hours and repeat. It felt great this morning, very smooth, but not sticky at all. However I want to properly protect the neck. Is 2 coats enough? If not, how many should I apply? I'm used to tung oil, where 5-10 rounds is not unusual, and i've never used wipe on poly before.
