Okay, I had to back off on trying to get a high gloss on the ebony. It was a loosing battle with my current skill level. But here it is. View attachment 372452 View attachment 372453 View attachment 372454 View attachment 372455 View attachment 372456 View attachment 372457 View attachment 372458
Very nice! Every time I鈥檝e worked with ebony I have to either not use a finish and just buff the wood to a gloss or spray with lacquer. Ebony has so much natural oil in it that it repels oil finishes and goes hazy.

I鈥檓 gonna reply to this one. That鈥檚 excellent info on the ebony, Shane. Thanks for sharing that. I have a block of it around here somewhere. Probably not enough for a slingshot but good info for whatever I do make. 馃憤
