Item details

These laminate scales are composed of upcycled blue denim, sandwiched together under pressure with an epoxy resin binder. The resulting material is commercially called "micarta", and can be used for knife handles, gun grips, and many jewelry applications, such as lapidary pendants, beads, barrettes, and buttons. Carving/sanding exposes the layers beautifully as in the third picture of a polished square piece of this material. The material is hard enough to be shaped, sanded, and buffed using normal woodworking tools and techniques, by machine or by hand. There are two sets of these scales available, all four scales measure approximately 5 1/4"x 1 1/2x 5/16" or greater.

Because many of our materials are upcycled, each set of scales is one-of-a-kind, and pictures of finished products, if included, will not represent exactly what your finished item may look like. Finished items shown in photos are for display, and are not included in this sale.

Finishing instructions: Sand finished pieces to a 600 grit or higher, then apply a coating of wax & let dry, and buff with a wheel or soft cloth for a matte finish. To glaze to a high-gloss finish, do not wax but spray with a polyurethane finish. Some oils tend to darken the colors quite a bit (tung oil and boiled lindseed oil) so we do not recommend these. However, a light coating of WD-40, in lieu of the polyurethane, gives the surface a "wet look" that brings out the pattern. Because they are thoroughly inundated with epoxy resin, the finished product will be waterproof with no seal needed.

Also available as a "you cut" 6.5"x 5.5" slab for $30, or 7.5" x 5.5" for $32. Send me a custom request if interested.

We will be adding new colors and designs frequently, so please check back often. Feel free to contact us about specific colors--we love custom work!

*COLORS: We strive to get the images as close to the real color as possible, but due to variations in monitors, they may not be precise. If you have specific concerns about a given color, feel free to message us.
