I just rescaled this kitchen knife and as the first one I have done there is a lot that is wrong with it but I wanted to post the way I finished it as it should work great for a lot of small GF projects.
I stumbled across this on the interwebs and mostly pen turners use it but it works great for any small smooth project.
Just sand smooth, apply a light coat of BLO (boiled linseed oil), then put a small amount of thin CA (super glue) on a shop towel and rub it in briskly. Don’t stop moving or you can end up gluing the towel to your part.
The BLO acts as an accelerant for the CA and everything is dry almost instantly. No hours between coats. Apply two or three coats and then polish.
