using a filler/sealer.........beeswax, rottenstone....etc
or the wet sanding method?
anyone tried both?
I was researching this a while back and found that every other custom stock maker has his own version of what to do. Very confusing. :< Would like to get some lumps of walnut offcuts and experiment myself when time permits though.
Using sealer is the easy route. Wet sanding, uses the wood fibers from your stock to fill the pores. This is HARD, TIMEconsuming work.
I tried wet sanding. Works well but requires elbow grease and patience and the blend must be perfect.
Pop me a mail, I'll explain
