    Re: About To Finish My First Build

    It’s purdy exciting that you’re finishing up. I used Zinnser sealer for my first build. It worked purdy good. I rubbed about 14 coats of Tru-oil over that and it still looks good.
    Whatever YOU...

    “Mineola Rag”

    I tried fading this tune out at the end but that didn’t work too well.

    Re: Will this cedar work for tops?

    It’s yellow cedar, probably cracked halfway towards the centre. This was used on the west coast for carving totem poles. It is softer than red cedar.

    This song was originally recorded by the Bolick Brothers (Blue Sky Boys). In 1980, it was recorded by Ricky Scaggs and Tony Rice. I play my simple version on my home made mandolin.
