I thought “What if I coated the whole ring in cyanoacrylate finish?”
...and I tried it.
The rings have since been through regular everyday wear including dishwashings, handwashings and showers.
END RESULT: This finish is holding up better than both Waterlox and Arm-R-Seal. And, in my opinion, it actually looks better.
CAVEATS: Obviously, this would be difficult to do on anything but very small woodworking projects. It’s just right for these wooden rings, but would be difficult to apply for a table finish. LOL!
I’m curious to know what you guys think about this.
