    1st build first question

    hi guys,
    i am building FV-1G
    how do you protect the binding when staining? tape? wipe it off? do you sand the veneer and with what grit? 400?

    Cheers.

    Hi Normy,
    Application of tape is a must do. Some people suggest sanding smooth, another thing (if you are careful enough to keep it off the wood) is give the binding a couple of coats of your clear coat. Be prepared to scrape after staining no matter what you do. Alcohol stains have a reputation for getting into cracks more than water based.
    Start a build diary and you’ll get a better response to questions and advice as you go.
