    Wow, those links are very helpful thanks. The kit just came in this afternoon, but I'm going to be doing a little more research and shopping before beginning the process.

    My hope is to use a color scheme I saw to finish my kit. I would actually like to to a little darker and possibly antiqued on the brown body, but you get the picture.

    Wood conditioner helped

    So I finally got started with the kit. I used some pre-stain and then some walnut stain and I think it took pretty well (minus some end-grain blotchiness, but what are you gonna do).

    I'll probably start oiling in a few days. I want to give the stain plenty of time to dry completely, and grad-school doesn't leave me to opportunity to spend all of my time on luthiery

    It's looking nice.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.
