Tried my hand at some scale making. Species used were claro walnut, peruvian walnut, maple burl, padauk, and maple/walnut veneer. Used brass pins and 30 minute epoxy to set the scales onto the blades. Finished with multiple coats of Tru Oil and buffed out on the Beall lathe system. Not flawless, but really turned out solid.
Hope it inspires some of you to give it a try.
Once I buff out the steel blades, they will be ready for their new homes.
