KORINA and tung oil


New member
Today, the tung oil is dry - I sanded the crap out of the body - it was nice as delivered.  But,  I wanted to "dehorn" it as they say in the custom pistol industry.  Essentially, I rounded off all the "lines" to give it a nice smooth rounded feel.

Here's a pic set up on some scrap to work with and dry...


Another kinda shows how the figuring changes (it has depth) the grain is a flame.  It is AWESOME!  I've seen some of the korina bodied in the showcase, and some have sort of a "mismatched" pattern.  But, this is an excellent piece.  The grain is fairly uniform and has great figure.
