Foggy morn & French polishing

Sunrise May 11 2016

Foggy sunrise over Lake Springfield this morning! Shortly after the sunrise, the fog rolled in densely and blotted out the sun altogether!

I did a bit of maintenance on the veggie garden to prepare it for seeding and planting of some small plants, but really my focus today is French Polishing the guitar. Put 3 more coats on yesterday, but was not pleased with the smoothness of the surface so I took it back down a couple layers….

Did you know that after he left the Navy, Sean Connery trained as a French polisher, working on the finishes for pianos and coffins…? He also took dance lessons for 11 years. (Source: The Independent UK).  Maybe if he is in the neighborhood, he could stop by and give me some pointers?
