First Rockler Impressions Were Great!
Beautiful scales and wonderful to work with. This was my first wood project and I think that the walnut really pulled the piece together. The staff at my local Rockler made the process seem a lot less intimidating with their own little tips and tricks on making the wood look great in the end.

Mine are very fancy and precisely cut. Maybe not quite as pretty as the picture, but very glad to have them!

Beautiful grain pattern, cut to the exact size for fashioning into a knife handle. The actual wood is better than the photos.

Walnut Scales
I became frustrated trying to split a one by four inch walnut piece, and decided to go with your scales. My first carving, and sanding opportunity worked out just fine. The knife turned out to be an excellent 50th Birthday gift.

How do you finish the walnut scales?
Allthumbs on Oct 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the scales for gun grips. Once they are shaped, sanded and drilled I use Birchwood Casey TRU-OIL (linseed oil base) or Formbsy's Tung Oil. Either product will seal the wood and give it a sheen. Truoil is shiner and may be matted with Scotch Bright. Tung oil gives a moisture proof finish.
