These are for a repeat customer of mine and I decided to use the blanks that I had set aside for building my own personal set. The grain patterns, coloration and gloss achieved on these is unreal. The more I use and learn about lacquer the better I'm getting at applying it. Yes, it takes longer for curing times between coats in order to sand smooth and then reapply, but the results speak for themselves. You'd have to see the gloss on these in person to really see the perfectly smooth mirror finish.
Gold gimbals and blocks that I painted myself with high quality engine enamel. One of my headbands as well. Only the cups are going to the customer btw.
