Purple ball bulletPurple ball bullet DYMONDWOODŽ


This brand of laminated wood is manufactured to produce a very unique material, which has the natural beauty of finished wood and still provide a high resistance to heat and moisture. Impregnated with clear resin and bonded under tremendous pressure it becomes dimensionally stable.
It works well with power and hand tools and needs only sanding and buffing with noncoloring rouge (white) to achieve high polish.

Suppliers cut up the larger panels into their own sizes and have own in-house names / descriptions for the same material.

Purple ball bulletPurple ball bullet BONE / BLACK - PAPER MICARTA

It is made by Westinghouse and it will not yellow with age as the old Micarta did.
It is a sturdy material, that will last for years.
Needs to be worked at the slower speed than the old ivory Micarta to prevent cracking.
Scrimshaws and polishes really well.
