Sometimes I just cant win.
« on: October 03, 2022, 07:41:59 PM »
Have this nice piece of stabilized Buckeye Burl and I cut some for this little knife.
The more I sand it down, the uglier it gets.
I have filled the voids with Super Glue  but that just adds to the lackluster.   :banghead:
Not going any further, time to cut this one off and start a new handle.

I don't know what it looked like before, but it's far from ugly now. But anywho, you could try some thick black Starbond CA glue to fill those gaps. It should look pretty good in Buckeye.

I have lots of stabilized wood so I'll just try a different piece.
