I also wonder about sanding it with superglue/CA glue - I did that with my pen and it made it both crazy shiny and really strong.
Yeah acts as a stabilizer, I’d guess. I dunno about food safety with cyanoacrylate…. I’d probably stick to food grade mineral oil.
Love that idea too, along with @evansd2’s. 3 pieces might actually work a tad better, since the edge would be sanded out of a solid piece, instead of sanding along where the boards are glued up for the edge.
Why stop at 3? You can use raw veneers to make some really interesting plywood
Something like this:

I used three veneer layers to make a tiny bee, it was the key to making the material bit thin and strong.
And it’s not veneer but if you didn’t see these detail shots of the handle of one of my sword projects it might give you some ideas about contrasting materials:
And this layered box used veneers for the layered effects.
Thank you for the file!
I just had to have one.
Maple blade with wenge handle. The laser didn’t quite make it through the 3/16 wenge so I had to surface sand it down to cut line. It wasn’t too bad. Blade started as around 1/8" hard maple. I use my belt sander to contour and thin down the blade. Finished with my cuttingboard finish/conditioner. Tomorrow
This is the one I made. The jag at the end fits the bottom curve of the jar and the other side fits the upper part of the jar. The big hole makes it easier to hang and the hook makes it much easier to open pull top cans. As it is as thick as three layers of PG wood with such a hard and complex grain that I don’t think a coating would even penetrate the surface.
Dude, that looks awesome! Thanks for sharing! I’ll need to throw a link over to here from my video.
I absolutely love it, especially for the problem solving it does.
No food safe sealant like say shellac or anything?
Sunday morning review. Yes, the knife is satisfying and a pleasure to use. Toast with butter and apricot jam.
The butter spread like… well I guess you already know.
See original post:
So…I did breeze past that….
but I also just wanted an excuse to bring up shellac again.
Looks really nice.
Even an in-use shot! Awesome!
i made a couple this weekend, too. top is yellowheart with rosewood handles and the bottom is figured maple with walnut.
