So I’m working on a ukulele for a co-worker’s special needs child. He loves music, and I think a small instrument that will allow him to make some sounds and improve his coordination will be kind of nice. I purchased a kit from Grizzly, nothing too wild, wanted to make sure I had time to finish it. Anyway, I was thinking about adding adhesive letters (his initials) either across the back or down the backside of the neck. Was thinking of a danish oil finish with a clear top coat (maybe shellac). If I oiled and allowed to fully cure and then added the adhesive letters, could I spray shellac (or other clear finish) over the letters and sort of “set” them in place?????
By the way, if this is a dumb idea, feel free to say so….....
