my body is going to have a flame maple top with this finish except instead of red i want the red to be grey. i dont know how to make it look just like that, if you have seen it in person youll know it has a thick layer of gloss (is that what its called?). youll also notice it has that black outline around it that fades into the flame maple top. does anyone know how i can get it to look just like this but in grey?
Read through the ultimate refinishing thread stickied at the top of the forum. I'm pretty sure dyeing a curly maple top and burst finishes are both covered in there somewhere.
