Southpa Posted February 20, 2004 Report Share Posted February 20, 2004 I just bought some abalone blanks of varying sizes. They are stained a beautiful deep blue color 3/4" and 1/2" dia. discs about 3/32" thick. In order to keep the blue on these pieces they can't be sanded or polished. So I had to countersink them into the rosewood fretboard and then lay clear epoxy over top. Then that can be sanded down and polished. Is this a common practice in some inlaying work?
