I tried another one today. This time I sanded with Abranet to 400, then went to thin CA. I only did 4 coats of thin CA as I was having a lot of trouble getting the CA to cure. Not sure why. I wondered if th resin had something to do with it as I've never had this issues before. The first 2 coats air dried. The last 2 I used same brand accelerator. After the 4 coats of thin CA, I sanded again to 400 with Abranet. Once done with that, I went to my Beall Buffing System. It uses EEE, then White Diamond, followed by Carnuba Wax. Since these blanks were shiny, I went with the Chrome Slimline kit. I'm pretty happy with it, though I prefer the first.
Its hard to tell due to my poor camera skills, but the dull shined pen shows much more grain pattern of the denim. I'm curious how the micarta would look if it was cut on a 30 or 45 degree angle.
