darksaber Posted November 6, 2009 Share Posted November 6, 2009 I picked up some African Mahogany yesterday for a really great deal and got a small section planed down to use as handles on some knives. It is really gorgeous with a dark chocolate color, ribbon striping effect and natural shimmer to the wood without any finish coating. If I can find the camera tomorrow I will upload some pics. But my question is what kind of finish should I apply to this to keep the same effects or even bring them out even more? Other than a few practice wooden handles I haven't really done the finishing steps to handles and really want this to turn out nice. And after all that I get to start making some sheaths to go with the knives, but that's a different project. Anyway thanx in advance for all the help and advice.
