Great demonstration and a beautiful finish. Darn copyright laws ;-)

It's amazing~~!
The grain filling looks like gloss.
Do you need more steps to finish?

Note- above Part one should read sealing white purfling (not staining)

2 -3 coats of ca glue is enough to fill most grain pores. sand the ca glue flat (not to wood) then spray

Great info. Thanks Beau. So after filling pours with CA, do you use a sealer like the Cardinal vinyl sealer before you spray the lacquer? or go straight to the lacquer?

I go straight to lacquer.
You can seal the ca with clear shellac which may be a bit safer- either way works though.

hahhahaha- I had to get my dad to post me some cork blocks as I couldn't find any in the US. I am blind though.

Does "Ride of the Valkyries" make the sanding process easier? If so, I'll play my Eric Kunzel CD at max volume :). Thanks for sharing.

HAHAHHA- originally i had Blind Blake picking some ragtime but youtube told me about copywrite so I have to find a freebie tune- Hard core classical sometimes sums up where my head is at for certain stages of the building process :) + it was the longest tune I could find hahaha
