Thanks Dan I had fun

The scrap Conus is done and doesn't look like scrap anymore. It's scrap conus as it is made of scrap

I don't think that this one needs groves for the bands as the fork is 2mm wider at the tip and the surface is smooth but not slippery. I'll try it carfully as usual

The finish
Sanded to 1000 grid with orbital sander
oiled with tung oil
waxed with a mix of 4 parts bees wax, 2 parts carnauba wax and one part of pine resin
sanded with 2000 grid
