I managed to build one for that much money, but I already had the motor. You may be better to invest in a good variable speed drill and high quality buffer pads for it. The speed is important. Too sl ...

I use the automotive 2 part clear coat. The store told me to use epoxy sealer under it.

If you are planning on doing one of those very figured colored quilted tops, you will need to do a dye and s ...

I have a customer that is looking for a water slide for his head stock. I think he is wanting custom colors, red, blue, and a mustard color. Not sure what he wants it to be design wise though.

There is a problem with your cure. No two batches of paint actually match. The drop fill will be close, maybe really close, but it will not match. If you can spray the area, you may be able to " ...

It appears your material is way too thin. You are spraying way too heavy. Open up the fan pattern to about four inches wide. You need to "fog" the color on. It will take multiple spray sessi ...

That is a sharp color.

You are going to need to mix colors to get there.

Seal the body first. Fill the grain with a dark orange grain filler. Then you will need to sand back to the bare wood whi ...

That was my thought. I envisioned a gooey mess. He seemed to think that if it was wiped on, then the frets wouldn't have any finish on them.

He is wanting a poly finish on the rest of it, but didn ...
