    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.

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