    Yip, definitely store it upside down. There is a foil seal under the lid, don't peel this off. Just make a small hole. This should help the life span of the TO.

    Hi Waz,
    Do you mean applying the TO/turp mix with the sandpaper
    or
    Wet sanding between coats?

    I have read many different methods of applying TO.
    Cheers,

    Graham

    Thank Waz,
    The Bass looks really nice. I wouldn't be unhappy with that finish.

    I've spent the last few weeks applying Tru-oil, 1 coat a day, 2 coats on Saturdays and Sundays when I'm home.

    Scraping the Binding

    Yesterday I peeled off the tape that was covering the binding. In some places it did its job really well, less so in other spots.

    Thanks Waz.
    I'm going to go with the tru-oil - maybe the yellowing will give it a vintage look?
