    Not a bad job on the veneer there. We've all joined the club of the galactically stupid from time to time.



    I tend to find that my dremel at high speed with teh sanding barrel edges the veneers quite nicely without flaking.

    I'll keep that in mind. Luckily I have such a thing in my shop.

    On to the finishing process. After giving the body and neck a good sanding to 400 grit I decided to try giving it a coat of sanding sealer before doing wipe on poly. I'm hoping that make the final product better and have an easier time applying the poly. It's kind of nice to get an idea of what the end result might look like with it all wet.
