I would say the grooves are from the method you used to apply the CA. How do you apply the CA????? Micromesh will not take out deep seated grooves. You need to get yourself some automotive sandpaper which can get you to 2000 grit. Use that with water and try sanding but everytime you sand you are removing layers of finish. So be aware of this. I would get it back to what you feel looks good and add a few more layers of CA and then follow the last steps. Whenever sanding a blank on a lathe you never sand in one spot. You continually move the sandpaper, micromesh, polishing rag or whatever back and forth. See the more I talk the more things come up that you will eventually learn but probably learn the hard way. If you are sanding light colored woods or open grained woods you do not want to sand the bushing and get metal black dust in the grain or on the light colored woods. I like to tape over the bushings when doing this. Good luck.
