Interesting. How does this adhere to the granite plate by itself?

Do you have a picture of this also ... love to see this part of your process.
And thanks for the link ... might try the diamond paste for that price.

Yep.  The cheapest stuff I can buy.  The granite plate is smooth and the oil in the paste seeps through a bit and things stick.  Eventually.  The first couple of grits you may need to use a bit of blue tape.

I don't have a picture of in-process. Might do a few more blades this weekend so if I remember, I'll take some.

Only need the smallest dab of the paste.  Then I spread it around with the blade itself.  Maybe out to an area 1" deep by a few inches wide.  Most of the blade hangs off the edge and away you go. Once the paste turns black from all the accumulated steel, I flip over and check the scratch pattern. Usually by that time it is uniform and I'm ready for the next grit. After about the 7um grit, it goes from matte to mirror.

Thanks, Rob.
I see it now, no need for pictures ... appreciate the feedback.

I get a similar effect with wet/dry paper, WD-40 and the piece of tempered glass I use. Smooth surface and get the air out.

First coat of Minwax Antique Oil Finish applied....




Man this old wood sucks up the finish  Rolleyes

I'll let that dry for a few days and then do it again

Speaking of finish......ever seen any plywood that the glue is showing through?
That's what I have here showing up after the first coat of finish on this upper frig box, after I sanded it.
Trying to decide whether to build another box, or veneer over this one, as this is the side that will be most visible. Hmmmm
