Spot Mandolin: Neck finish - gone!! (21) RE: Mandolin: Neck finish - gone!! 24 Aug 06


Allo everybody...

          Thank you for that , Bert.... :-)

          Richard...I wondered about steel wool but have always felt it seems to push its own blackness and dirt into the wood.Maybe I've been too heavy handed with it in the past...!! At the minute, there are 2 coats of 50/50 tung oil/white spirit on the neck. I dont want to overdo it!! (Are you planning to seal your neck with something or leave it bare?). Maybe the same again over the next couple of weeks will suffice...Its cooler in UK than as of late - it'll be interesting to see how it feels in the autumn humidity...Hmmm, hope I've done the right thing!! (course I have ...it's done now, anyways!!)

                Regards to all ....Spot
