    Black Palm Scales

    Black Palm Scales on Maple by Kenneth Wines that I turned and finished with 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Satin Polyurethane using my Dipping Method to get that wood feel.
    I find using a Gloss finish on wood makes it look and feel too much like the plastic look that you get with a CA finish.
    Dressed up on a Black Titanium / Platinum Elegant Beauty Sierra frame.
