Default First Try at Plexi-finish

I tried the Plexi-finish tonight on a peppermill I was working..
this is my first serious attempt at making the finish work... not too bad.. need to work on my application some more though.. I got a few bumps, tried to sand them out, but didn't work as well as I wanted.. re-applied plexi, then wiped lightly with acetone.. smoothed them out ok.

Looks great! You chose a serious piece to use as your first attempt!
