Tru Oil Padauk Finish

At this point we are about 5 coats of " TRU OIL" into the finish of the back and sides . As you can see it shines quite nicely . It does take longer to finish this way and the Wood prep is way more important . The Tru Oil finish does not hide scratches or blemishes in the wood .

I do think I will use this technique again , I like the way it goes on and looks finished .

Thanks for stopping by.

Finish on Pudauk Build

I have decided to try the TRU OIL finish on the Padauk Build . I have applied 3 coats of sealer /filler sanded and am starting the Coats of True Oil now . this is a much slower process than Laq. I am hoping I like it , looking good so far .
