Well I just finished my first natural. It is a wild cherry fork! I used a store-bought tube set because my bands haven't arrived yet. <br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/IMG_0348.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/IMG_0349.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>It dulled for some reason. I soaked it for 24 hours in boiled linseed oil, but now it seems almost dirty..? Do you guys know how to get rid of it, and how to shine it up?<br>Cheers!<br>Ben

Ive been using a homemade concoction of beeswax and a bunch of neat oils. But a lot of people use chrome polish and I have as well to get a nice shine. Another option would be to get a nice wood polish/Oil of some kind and use that( like a lemon or citrus based furniture polish).<br><br>Sandpaper is kinda a big deal to using a high grit will get a nice finish(shine/luster) and smoothness you cannot get without doing that step.<br><br>Now after my mini rant great looking slinger hope you enjoy it. !

Nerver saw that kind of band attachment. About making it shine, some people are using varnish but for the color the linseed oil gave it, i think you can' t get rid of it.<br>Anyway it looks good as it is to me, good job.
