Re: Best glue for filling gaps in ash, with tru-oil finish?

Hi a quick way of stopping the ebony staining the ash would be to paint the groove first with a coat of cheap clear woman's nail varnish. It forms a protective barrier. I have used this several times and seems to work. Practice on some scrap first to see if you need one or two coats. Ian

Re: Introduction - Crazy Carvin' Cris

Hey Chris, have a look at the guitar builder Jeffrey Jones, you may find inspiration from him. Great work, love it!!

Re: Animal/human figurehead on classic violins?

Hi There used to be a guy who posted here called Andrew Scott, he did a dragon violin and some other similar giraffe cello. He hasn't posted for some time, I just tried to Google him and if you Google Blindworm it will find a link. Great carving, love that lion

Re: Thoughts on fiberglass bodies?

I cant remember which one it was but somebody built a hollow fibreglass guitar for one of the challenges a few years ago, check the archives
