Default Re: 100 year old mahogany

OK not quite there, but I did get one tom into the finished stage. It still needs to come apart one more time for a little lug adjustment and the tension rods are too long, so I was not able to tune it up yet. I wet sanded the shell with grits 600,800,1000,1500,2000 and 2500. Always seems weird taking sandpaper to a close to finished shell, but after the sanding and buffing with a couple stages of polish, the end result speaks for itself

Then a coat of Danish oil to the inside, and assemble using quality allen head fasteners
