Design and Build a Custom Electric Guitar
As a basecoat, thinned shellac will seal the wood to prevent any oils or other contaminants from floating to the surface of your other finish coats. Sellac will also make the grain really pop and is my go to basecoat for all my natural wood products. The shellac needs to be dewaxed shellac such as Zinzers Seal a Coat. Minwax wipe on poly is the poly I always use over the shellac. Together, the two finishes will give you a deep rich finish with a minimum of work and mess.
Awesome Chris! Would you mind sharing the design so others can make this round burr?
