    Did you manage to get a good grain fill with the 'leave the sawdust in place' method?
    My natural finish with Aussie Oil on the 12 string '335-style' didn't really give me full grain fill.

    Yes same as TO method. The shellac can get sticky just add a drop or two of virgin olive oil to keep it moving. (It separates and rises to the surface and can be wiped off later)

    It seems to have worked... I'll soon find out once the glossing up coats are applied.

    Wow Andrew, your grain looks awesome - especially on the front. She's going to be a beautiful axe.

    cheers,
    Gav.

    So the shellac was a disaster, I was not cut out to be a fine furniture finisher. I stripped this baby back and out with the old trusty Tru Oil...

    I did however develop a new way of applying Tru Oil through this process. I'll video the technique on the neck

    Here's the front, back and small video of the shine. Up to 800 grit.
