No room for a horse with an Ass like me around
It was much wetter today, and a little colder, but I learnt from experience and gave both ukes a thorough wipe down to remove the olive oil. And that was a good idea because when I got ready to apply more shellac I discovered that the oil in the jar had gone waxy again overnight.
But once I'd warmed it up again I got 2 more coats on each uke. But I think I really do have to clear some space and move operations home.
On a more interesting note, I had a chat with a guy in the village pub tonight. I'd heard on the grapevine that he was a time served Master French Polisher and highly recommended. And he's more than happy to give me some instruction and help in the future. I'm going to carry on with the method I've already started (no point in swapping horses mid race, that causes more problems than it solves) but he did appreciate the fact that I would rather look slightly foolish in the short term if that meant I would learn more in the long term. Lets just say that he is very damning of some of the methods being passed down by luthiers, and is more than happy to teach me properly when I have a future project.
