Ian, what type of soft cloth did you use? I’ve applied a fist coat with a brush, but don’t really want to buy a new brush for each coat. Cloths might be cheaper that Osmo Brush Cleaner.

Hi Ifor,
I used some fine sponge for the first coat, then soft cotton cloth from old pillowcases/sheets. Make the cloth into a pad and apply in even light strokes in the same direction as the grain. For large areas I use the cloth wrapped around a sponge as it holds more liquid. If the surface is really smooth and finished with 600 grade AlOx "sandpaper", then just the cloth is OK, a light sanding with 600 grade after the first coat improves the depth of shine if you're really fussy!

Have fun
Ian
 

Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

Is this a new design across the Frugal horn range? Only the sides look to be chamfered rather butted.

Made some XL’s about a year ago, sound excellent.

It is the newest of the FH range. Stefan at KJF Audio has cut them all this way now, but not yet shown in the pictures on his website. His idea is that no clamping is needed, just tape.

When it comes to refinishing car paint and metalwork 600 grade is quite coarse, finer than Aluminium Oxide, Silicon Carbide paper grade 1200, 1800 and even 2400 are available.

Must make some Lites then to see what they’re like. Must save the pi## about of veneering too.
