“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

LMI Pore Filler



PoreFillerPhotoSquare500LMI Pore Filler is an easy to use water cleanup, paste wood filler. This filler is designed to be used with water-based finishes, but with proper cure can be used successfully under lacquers. LMI Pore Filler doesn't shrink and is minimally absorbent of finishes and solvents. 
We offer 4 base colors:
  • Maple/Natural for light-colored woods
  • Mahogany for medium red/brown woods
  • Walnut/Rosewood for dark brown colored woods
  • Ultra Dark/Blackwood for the darkest woods
TO USE: Simply spread a small amount over the surface to be filled using a flexible spatula raked across the grain, pressing the material into the pores while scraping away the excess. When the pores are filled, set aside to dry (minimum time one hour, best overnight), then sand or scrape smooth. Seal wood with a wash coat of suitable sealer, then proceed with regular finishing routine.
PLEASE NOTE: This products contains microbeads and should not be washed down the sink. It is best to dispose of with regular trash headed to a landfill. See the Sierra Club's article "How to Handle Microbeads"
