I decided to remake one of the business card holders because I wasn’t happy with the finished look (I sanded and refinished and still wasn’t happy).
Cutting the new one, I decided to clean a piece up, sand laser edge off, etc. before putting it together.
One of the nice things about Baltic birch is how the edges look. Like the first holder I made. It provides a nice contrast and appearance.
Cleaning this up though, it’s like the contrasted edge of the ply is just disappearing. Two photos: one shows the flat side and one shows the curved side. The contrasting ply edge runs all the way to the curve then just goes to crud. I thought maybe it was filler or something, but it seems like it’s consistent with the curves.
What am I doing wrong?
