    figured id post up some pics of my handy work since i was showin off to someone else
    they started out as new polish handguard sets i picked up from i think it was allied armerment a while back before he moved
    anyways i just lightly sanded them to get the oil base off and diddnt even stain them-just put on about 10 coats of polly
    i wet sanded(using lemon oil and 2500 grit)between coats
    and there ya have it VIOLA!!

    thanks guys
    earnie,i use minwax clear satin wipe on polly
    i use a sponge squeege brush to apply it on-thats what it looks like to me anyway

    you can get them at home depot for like 40cts or so each
    and i brush on in one direction overlapping the stokes making sure it dont leave a line
    then after it cures for a day before i put another coat on -depending on how smooth it came out-i buff with 0000steeel wool or i use 2500 grit paper and wetsand with lemon oil

    again let sit to cure for a day and repeat for desired effect
    they usaly take me about 3 weeks to do-some stocks im doing are taking over a month
    but im also spraying on minwax clear aresol laquer on it-clear gloss
    and man im liking the results!!!I swear one im almost finished with is almost a dead ringer for russian stain-but more glassy lookinill post up some pics when done

    too bad you dont live close by earnie-coffees allways on bro!!
    gimme a pm somtime
