I've had good experience finishing necks using rattle can nito and rub on poly. For my latest build using an Allparts neck I decided to try tru-oil after reading it was easy to apply and created a great finish. I have about 6 coats on so far and I'm having issues creating a smooth/clean application right next to the frets. There are imperfections by the frets. Not sure if this is due to lint or something else I'm doing wrong. I suspect I used too much oil in one application. I've tried applying with coffee filters, but that did not seem to apply the oil right up to the frets. Now I'm using cotton fabric that seems lint free. See pics for reference. I've tried smoothing the imperfections with scotch brite pads and light sandpaper, but that has not helped. In one case I actually created a line parallel to a fret by mistakenly going across the grain. Questions- will additional coats of tru oil cover or hide these imperfections? Is there some other way to clean up the area by the frets? What could be causing my issue? If I decide to strip and spay with nitro, whats that best method to strip the tru-oil? Thanks for any advice!
