    I am working on a bass with a Shedua wings Maple core and Walnut back. I haven't worked with shedua yet what do you guys suggest. Will tung oil finish look good on it?
     
  2. here's a vote for tung oil. I think it would look good with an oil finish.

    I used Tung Oil on Shedua and it looked great, brought out the grian very nicely. Tom

    Very cool did you use filler first or just keep it with the pores showing?.........t
