Micky, I am glad to have you for a CBN friend.    I have enjoyed your builds an photos.   I came to your page today and see you are from the London area and that you are in 34 CBN groups.  Thirty four!

Hey mickey,
On burning in fret marks: I find that burning first allows the oil, then lacquer, to highlight the burn marks, and then the lacquer smooths over and protects the line. I have done it afterward, but it leaves a crusty burnt edge to the lacquer, is less protected, and is a more rustic look. That's OK, if that is what you're looking for...
