Default Re: "Popping" the grain with water based finishes...

I've had good luck with the Target stuff... but the 2 week waiting time before wet sanding kills me. With Crystalac you're talking 3 days tops. Price wise we're talking about the same and from the reviews my fellow drum builders give the Super Premium I've gotta try it.

The shellac is obviously warming but having the oil under it really makes a world of difference. I kinda learned woodworking backwards in that I couldn't even tell you what a rabbit was but I had to learn how to lay down a glass like finish on a cylinder.
