The hand selected materials for this item were first cut and drilled, then turned on a lathe by me, Jack. Sanding is completed through several grits until the piece is smooth to the touch. Next, up to 10 finish coats of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) are applied by hand, one at a time. The finish is buffed with a series of micromesh pads, then shined with polishing compound until the surface has a glass-like appearance. A final rub on the buffing wheel adds depth and final clarity.
This method, the most difficult and intensive technique, provides your purchase with the most durable exterior possible, and a beautifully reflective surface that resists the elements and will last for many years.
