Can a bridge be successfully glued on a Tru-oil finish with the scrape method ?

I'm far less experienced than you but have done this a few times. Bridges are still on. The Tru oil barely penetrates the wood.

Same here....done it a few times. No issues

Thanks for that I'll give it a go .... If the bridge comes off I'll be back to blame you :rolleyes:...For an experiment we did a soprano in Tru oil finish ....Mrs Timbuck dosn't like the result...She says "it looks too modern" .. So it appears that we will still stay with the Shellac Finish......As result I have a large 30oz bottle of Tru-Oil going up for grabs:D
