CA glue is your best bet. I use the medium viscosity glue and it seems fine. Sand your blank to 600 and then apply the glue with a blue shop rag. I usually put on 5 or 6 coats but I’ve heard of people going up to 12. Then use micro mesh pads to sand to 12000 and finally finish with a plastic polish.
