Sorry to hear that. I can't remember crying harder over a human dying than one of my dogs.

Lots of burbot around here but no cats to speak of. Great eating though! Not my pic.

I would agree. That's pretty much full on open grain.

You could always rent some shore posts from a scaffolding supplier. Bit of a job you've got there for sure.

It will likely help some although you would need a pretty heavy film build up and even then, without a grain filler, ash grain will be very pronounced which some people prefer.

Ash is a ring porous wood. If you want a smooth, glass like surface, a grain filler is needed. Timbermate or something similar should accept stain prior to finish. You can skip the pore filler but the grain and pores will be front and center. Depends ... more »

A lot of wild horses still around here, mostly in the foothills. Shot regularly by farmers protecting crops. Rounded up and sold off for slaughter or in some cases to those who train and keep. Tough mustangs for the most part. Pretty controversial for ... more »

An indigenous band North of me has 36 or so game cams set up here in Alberta. Moose rutting, caribou, wolves catching fish and playing. The coolest part is the lynx catching a duck on the fly! https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/a-year-in-wildlife-alta-first-nation-releases-incredible-footage-caught-by-motion-sensor-cameras-1.4772834 ... more »

I only use spray on dyes and nitro so haven't used oil before. I know a ton of guys use Tru-oil gunstock finish but not sure if that would work over a dye? I'll pull out my Erlewine finishing book later and see if he addresses it. He most likely does. ... more »

Looks great Borg. Once I'm done with the acoustic I'm working on, I'll be tackling the walnut Les Paul you sent me. I have a few ideas and even have all the electronics not including pickups from quite few years ago when I rewired a friend's Les Paul ... more »
