Recommended Posts

I've only recently started using this for handle material and need to figure out how to finish it.

Donald, I've used it and it's easy to finish. Sand to a smooth finish and buff. It's a stabilized product so you don't need to oil or seal it.

Thanks. Didn't know that it was a stabilized product already. Cuts down on my finishing time then.

Its good to note that its formaldehyde based stabilization. Good stuff, but very carcinogenic when you breathe the dust. I was buying it out of the specialty section of a local lumber store and using it for knife handles. There was no warning or explanation of the product So I did not know to take extra precaution until much later.
