cotton balls are a great budget stuffing. I havent seen that bamboo fibre before, that could indeed be interesting to try out.
I learnt on my 1st build just how much work spray painting an MDF box was. Before i tried sealing with household emulsion I laid down probably half a dozen primer coats, same or slightly fewer for colour coat, and the same for lacquer. I found i had to wait 2 weeks at least before re-lacquering otherwise i removed far more than overspray. Tedious and it turned out ok, but not the piano gloss id hoped for.

A luthier friend recommended a 2 part setting lacquer he uses. I cant recall the brand, but it certainly wasnt cheap. However it worked a treat when he re-lacquered my faithful ol' geetar, with a brush no less.
Balancing the things I must do, with the things I'd like to do...This is a skill (or a luxury) amongst many that I do not possess.

#168 confirms FG works. I see two other materials mentioned, but again, no objective comparisons.
