Hey Ivan, looks great, will you just clear coat it or add some colour?
One of the bodies will have a tint in a colour yet to be determined, while the other will fade from dark edges to clear in the middle. That's the current plan anyway.

I need a little more detail here - looks like this is much less labour-intensive (or messy) than what I'm doing at the moment
Michael, I've been watching some furniture restoration video’s lately and thought I'd try some different grain highliting options to see what works best. I tried the timbermate filler and this spirit based stain. I haven't tried the oil based stains yet.
The spirit based stain was definitely simpler and cleaner than the timbermate filler. The method was basically to sand the timber, use the wire brush to remove dust from pores, apply a thin coat of clear sanding sealer as I was worried that the stain might absorb too deep into the wood, apply one coat of stain with a cloth....wiping off the excess. Let it dry for a few days and then a light sand with some 240. Lets compare notes when we next meet up in Croydon.
I just hope all of this plays well with the final nitro coat
.........further testing needed.
