Just a different technique. By wet sanding I mean sanding wet oil/sprit/poly into the wood.
Filling the grain and pores with the slurry and then wiping back. Many coats lighter grits as you go.
Here's what my attempts look like.


Well, that is not wet sanding, to be sure.  It also is not how guitars are traditionally finished (Nitrocellulose lacquer, sprayed, wet sanded, and polished).  It sounds more like a cross between varnish and french polishing.

OK , the rework station's handle needs a new element therefore the missing metal part .

So we moved since I posted in this thread, this is my current setup:



Needs some work on organizing storage and something for the V-Amp so I can turn it on and off and use it without it occupying a third of the desk.

The guitar (lower left corner) would also benefit from a sixth string (the high E-string snapped while I tuned it a few days ago, but it makes sounds - at least when the dodgy switch decides to work - so it fills its purpose).

The greatest benefit from this new workspace is that it's about five meters from my front door, the old one was about two hundred meters away. So much easier to steal five minutes worth of soldering when it's close.

The greates problem with this setup is that I put the shelf above the "desk shelf" too low, so my multi bin storage thingie has to reside on the floor, though it does leave a little more space on the desk.

Quote from: The Incredible Shrinking Man
I was continuing to shrink, to become... what? The infinitesimal? What was I? Still a human being? Or was I the man of the future? If there were other bursts of radiation, other clouds drifting across seas and continents, would other beings follow me into this vast new world? So close the infinitesimal and the infinite. But suddenly, I knew they were really the two ends of the same concept. The unbelievably small and the unbelievably vast eventually meet like the closing of a gigantic circle. I looked up, as if somehow I would grasp the heavens. The universe, worlds beyond number, God's silver tapestry spread across the night. And in that moment, I knew the answer to the riddle of the infinite. I had thought in terms of man's own limited dimension. I had presumed upon nature. That existence begins and ends in man's conception, not nature's. And I felt my body dwindling, melting, becoming nothing. My fears melted away. And in their place came acceptance. All this vast majesty of creation, it had to mean something. And then I meant something, too. Yes, smaller than the smallest, I meant something, too. To God, there is no zero. I still exist!

I have two areas i do work, inside for soldering, building etc, and outside for drilling / painting / powder coating etc.  We recently updated our garage from the bombsite it was, to include a pretty good work area as well.  Doesnt have my soldering iron / components etc in the photo, i do that stuff inside, but thought you might find the garage update interesting.  Excuse my language, but i f!@#ing love it  ;D Unfortunately i dont have a photo of THE VERY BEGINNING.  It wasnt pretty.  Anyway heres a couple of photos of the update:







You can see the compressor, drill press, toaster oven on the bench, theres also a powder coating gun in the corner on the desk.
