Finishing!

Just a quick update, showing the progress as I add layers of shellac to the guitar.  It is wonderful to see the depth the finish adds to the already glorious walnut and spruce.  The finish process is very delicate and I’m learning quite a lot this time around.  Next shop project is a spray booth!

Coats of Shellac are "polished" on using a cotton pad.  Slow work but very enjoyable.

The next step is "spiriting off" of the Shellac, where the surface is polished smooth and awesome.
