Hi, I have not much of an idea yet, but I found a very interesting natural that may work, not sure, but it has some potential, I had the start date for yesterday, but all I did was to seal and dry it to 2%. I will probably hold it until I figure it out. Neat piece of wood, Chinese doogwood, I hope I don't butcher it😁😁 next week I will start, I am taking care of my dad this weekend and have no tools.

I got started yesterday afternoon, I'm not 100% sure if this will count, it might not project far enough beyond the hand. I didn't even know the July sotm had started, I was just trying something different. If it does count then Awesome!

I ended up revealing a couple small cracks in the ebony so I packed them with 5min epoxy mixed with ebony dust.

That one’s like a phaser.

I'm getting closer to done. One of the cracks I filled doesn't seem to like the tru-oil. I'm hoping it'll hide it better if it's glossy enough.

I forgot to mention that I'm using ebony and quilted maple with brass. I was surprised to find cracks as I got further into the ebony, I guess it wasn't seasoned properly, which is a little frustrating because it was $35 for a pretty small piece.

Lol, I still like it when the characters on star trek "set phasers to silicone". I think it was the original star trek.

Thanks, I'm hoping I can complete the finish today. The ebony did end up having some really pretty "smoke" running through it but the tru-oil made it so dark you can barely see it.
