I use Deft laquer [ spray can ] i shoot it over the whole build.
Thanks, I'll check if it's available in Oz
I use tung oil all the time. Works good all over the neck and fingerboard.
Im confused. Does the superglue soak in with the glue? Or does it create some type of top coat? I normally use Boiled linseed oil alone. Or I use flooring urethane( rubbed in). I saw the neck you made for Dewy. Really nice job. Was that one done with superglue?
after trying tung oil and then minwax polyurethane, I now use Danish oil - it dries to a harder finish & holds uo to handling better. My 2 cents.
I do the finish after cutting the frets , before hammering them in. Then touch up the edges from finishing frets.
I use tung oil , although I will try danish oil since Jim Woods says it gives a harder finish . Oils are easy to apply and give the the fingerboard a near frictionless finish compared to the polyurathane I used to use. I apply oil after fretting .
The Auzzie finish is intriguing. I get an image of me trying to explain to my wife how I glued a guitar to my hands :-)
My biggest problem with tung oil was patience. Like you I could not wait days to play the new git & it would become a gummy mess.
