I'm a hobbyist. I'm building a guitar cab.
This is my first touch of a table saw and first try and box joints.
A couple of Q's: 1. I sanded the heck outta this thing but apparently not enough to get the leftover glue. I stained this and obviously it didn't stain over the glue. Bummer. So some parts of the cab have "blemishes". Do I just need to sand MORE next time? How do I ensure a great stain?
I cut the center hole out with a jigsaw and it's not perfect. It's not bad but it's not perfect. How would I get a better result?
How do I get a REALLY nice glossy shine and protection on this? I used about 4 coats of spray polyurethane lacquer ... and while its an ok finish, I'm looking for a protective coating but also a really smooth and glossy finish. How do I achieve that?
Any help is appreciated!
