Thanks for the compliments

I appreciate your compliments.

I didn't use anything heavier duty than 150 grit to take off material. I used 400 wet/dry afterwards, which got it to a satin like look and feel........though not "shiny" like they came. Larry the Gripmaker told me I could take it to 600-800 and then go over it with Birchwood Tru-Oil (anyone with experience with this?) or Johnson's Paste Wax. I'm leaning towards leaving it satin-like and just waxing it....sounds like it would look more "natural"........what do youall think?

Once again.....thanks.........
