"Richey, the finish is 3 or 4 coats of medium walnut Danish oil to give it a better color than the pale greenish yellow of the poplar I used.  Once that had a few days to dry I topcoated with General Finishes' Arm-R-Seal clear. …"

Hi Michael, I really like your work. You are a fine craftsman. I dig the unique look of each one of your instruments. The different sound hole and headstock shapes are great!  Keep em coming!
