Sanding and oiling

If anyone wants to find inner peace and zen, I can recommend sanding a guitar for 6 or 8 hours. No guarantees that you'll find inner peace, but hey, at least you'll have a nicely sanded guitar at the end.

Sanding was done by hand with 120, 240 and 320 grit paper. I've then done two coats of Osmo wax/oil satin finish, which is what I had in the cupboard from a previous project (building a dining table). Sanded with 1200 paper after each coat.

It takes at least a day for the oil to dry properly, so this is an exercise in patience.
