I have just finished a rebuild of a TD150 mk2 with a Bubinga plinth (Thorens Gallery) but I have not been able to bring out the figure in the wood as you have.
The colour that you have achieved is beautiful, I used several coats of French polish but it didn’t really colour up, the figure is there, I just don’t know how to get at it. I really should stick to working with metal!
This is a cheeky question but would you mind telling me the manufacturer of the poly-wax that you used so I can track it down in the Uk please.
Have a look at this thread/post: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=50310#p394009
I made them both from the same piece of timber and also with the same finish...
Your TD150 looks excellent!!! Congrats
Just a note on the timber. I am almost certain that the way the piece of Bubinga I have been using was planked is different from how it should of been planked...
I was expecting it to look more like this:
The sides come out like the bottom piece and the tops came out like the top piece:
