Oiled lacewood?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by fourstringbliss, Jun 27, 2005.


  1. How would this lacewood body look with an oil finish? How about the Jotoba body? Is it possible to use a pore filler prior to applying an oil finish? Would it be better to do a danish oil finish method?

    Thanks!

    Here is how my old Acacia custom looks with oil finish:

    Looks better in person, of course.

  3. That looks really good! What kind of oil did you use and what process did you follow to get those results?
