The heads I'm working on a fairly old with a very dark finish. After a
light sanding the hosel and some other areas (eg. top of the toe) became
very light (down to the wood). If I stain them as is, they will appear
blotchy. I guess my options are A) use a really dark or solid colour. I
don't really want to do this to such nice looking wood. B) experiment with
the bleach on a $2 garage sale special :-).
Do you follow the method described in the books using a semi-paste wood
filler after staining? Is this required? Do you use the stuff sold by
the component suppliers or have you found a hardware store equivalent?
(Same questions for face sealer and primer/sealer for sole plate)
Thanks for any pointers, tips or info. you can provide.
