    Polyester blank from CSUSA with a Black Titanium/Platinum Elegant Beauty.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and polished with Hut Ultra Gloss.

    Les you do great work . But every ounce in awhile you need to show some thing you messed up, just to prove your human, not a machine.

    That's a beauty, Les. One of my favorite blanks from CSUSA.

    Your finish looks great. I always sand through micro-mesh 12000 and polish with a plastic polish from the auto parts store. Your method sounds much more efficient and the results are at least as good from what I see in the photos (which are awesome). Which steel wool are you using?

    Thanks

    Thanks Tony

    I used either Bull Dog brand or the x-fine from Lee Valey.
