guys, as i had announced previously, i want and will give a try to making my own (hand-made by my own two left hands) wa-handle. it will be most likely made of stabilized wood and possibly a spacer, either nickel silver or recon stone. i will use mortise & tenon construction. will regular sand paper sand down the nickel silver or the recon stone? or will i have to use smth different? i understand that recon stone is very brittle so i will be very careful... what grits do you use for rough shaping, and then for finishing?
