I’ve been working on some pistol grips for a friend of mine and he had asked for them to be made from Cocobolo. The piece that I purchased had great grain and an interesting red orange colour. The problem that I having is that now that I have one grip almost finished, it’s lost a lot of the colour. It’s now more of a pinky haze. The grain is still nice but I’d like to get some of the richness back. I read a lot about finishing problems and I was hoping to just sand it down to a shine to avoid them, which I hear is possible.
I guess what I’m asking is, has anyone else had this problem and what did you do about it, if anything?
Thanks in advance.
