I did all the fingers for the ring bowls. I used 3 coats of Minwax High gloss Poly & sanded lightly between coats using 0000 steel wool. the last coat of poly on the fingers after I was done then I epoxied the fingers in the bowls & after about 24 hrs the fingers are still tacky? did I sand down to much? & possibly take off the sanding sealer? How should I fix this since the fingers are epoxied in.
The bowls are made from Bubinga & the fingers are Gabon Ebony.
The Minwax High Gloss Poly is only about 1-1/2 months old.
I'm stumped how can I get a nice high gloss on the Gabon Ebony fingers???
Thanks for the help
P.S. I rechucked the bowls by the foot & tried to sand the fingers with
400 grit paper all 5 of the fingers came loose then off??? the tenons on the fingers were about 3/16" but the holes were a tad big about 1/32"-1/16"
I used System 3 Epoxy bowls were left for about 24 hrs for the glue to cure. I put a couple of drops in the holes & smeared the tenons with it also. I cleaned out the holes as much as I could then re epoxied them
