The neck has about an ounce of thin C/A rubbed on it. It took about 8 coats or so to build it up. The body, also finished the same way, has about 2 ounces. Then i sanded it to 3000 grit and polished then waxed it. All of it was done by hand.How much CA glue does that take?
Apply the C/A with paper towels (folded in quarters). Also be in a very well ventilated area because it is a nasty chemical reaction. The paper towels will start smoking then you start to come and your eyes will burn. Also, let it naturally dry. Do not use an activator because it will turn white and get cloudy. It will dry fairly quickly anyway.
I got the idea from watching videos of wood turning on YouTube when they would finish something like a pen or bowl. Instead of spinning it on the lathe, I rubbed it on then had to do the extra steps to smooth it out. It's really cool in that it feels like a poly finish but doesn't get sticky at all and is only about 1/3 as thick. If i excellent want to take it off... acetone bath.
