Thanks for shipping the cactus juice promptly,-thought I'd be using it before now.
I have finally gotten all the pieces of things needed to stabilize some wood knife scales. Quite a lot involved before doing the actual cactus juice ,
I am planning on the first cactus juice this fri and have a couple of questions you probably can answer.
I cut all my knife scales 1 1/8 "x 1 5/8"
cooked them in the toaster oven to dry. Bagged them-
Is it ok to stabilize them in this size and then after cured ,- slice those blocks down to 3/8" to have book matched scales ?
Or--slice them BEFORE curing to 3/8" ? Does it even matter??
I don't want to have them sliced into bookmatched pairs and get them all mixed up w/o having them marked.
If you think it is better to slice them to final size before stabilizing/curing I would do that but how would you mark them pairs?
What would one mark them with that would with stand the juice activity and possible dissolving say a sharpie marker?
Thanks for your help
