The above pictures are part of a keeping chest. I hope these url’s work so you can see the pictures. I am not good with putting my work on the site and until it gets easier this will work. The sizing pictures I do not understand either?
I want to put turquoise in the worm holes and in the knots. My questions are:
Why do people say to use Silicon Carbide sandpaper instead of Aluminum Oxide sandpaper to sand out the turquoise stone and dust?
What grit do I need to sand the stone?
What kind of glue do I need of these three, CA glue, West Systems Epoxy, InLace resin kits, to fill the worm holes and knots?
Can the stain go on after the turquoise or can it be applied after a couple coats of stain and oil?
I use a three step process, Water based aniline dye, Danish oil, wipe on poly and of course there is lots of sanding.
If Silicon Carbon sandpaper is used at 80 grit how does t not mess up the wood? I can’t find 100, 120, grit on amazon.
Sorry about all the questions guys, but I would really get this box out of my hair so all the tips, comments, and advice would greatly be appreciated. I can take some closer pics if that would help.
