My 2 favorites from some recent shop time. A couple platinum tycoons.

Those things are Sharp looking. Is that some sort of acrylic? the pattern on the pens just jumps right out at you, how it swirls is really cool. One day I’ll make some of these. if it is in fact acrylic do you treat it like Corian?
sand, sand, sand, then buff to achieve a gloss?

Excellent job on those. A+

Thanks. They are both acrylics from PSI, and the components are from them as well. I do treat them very much like corian. I turn down with carbide tools, finish up with the skew, use the first 5 pads in the micro-mesh set, and use the tripoly and white diamond buffs. I’d have used the canuba wax buff too, but I ran out. Just came in today. :)
