I just joined up after seeing your EXQUISITE projects! I, along with many others, appreciate your taking the time and trouble to share your work. I am embarking on a couple of woodfinishing projects involving figured guitar bodies: one quilted maple and the other swamp ash. I read your ‘2-dye-4’ post and was inspired! Especially the results you achieve using wipe-on poly! This particular piece (Sprout) has the perfect color combo to complement the abalone fret markers on the neck I’m using with the swamp ash body. So I’d really appreciate it if you’d confirm the dye schedule you used. Black, green and finally yellow? Any blue in there?
Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, Tim
