Neither of you should consider any of the work you have both posted as being totally substandard. Heck, the meer fact that some of the materials used to produce the finished scales you have aren't even accessable and is tribute enough to the innovation and determination both of you have to continue producting the great looking scales both of you have presented here.
Just for the record, these are the second set of scales I had to make for this razor. The first set produced a nice crack in the final sanding stage and I had to start over. This seems to be one draw back to Amboyna. So if you decide to use this wood, make sure you have enough to make more than one set of scales.
The finish on this razor is 10 coats of Varnish, sanded to 2000 grit every 2 coats. Finally hand rubbed with Light rubbing compound, two coats of furniture past wax and a final buffing. The inside backing is brick colored with an Ebony wedge.
Thank you Ray, I [big]was[/big] very happy with my scales and restorations so far :blink: :huh: :blink:
Torben, listen to my voice..........
My mind to your mind, Mmmkay, my mind to your mind

Just an overwhelming glow of deep joy, Mmmkay
Now when I click my fingers you will awaken, brew a fresh coffee and feel at one with your world....Mmmkay
Bwhahahaha (thunder sounds) Bwhahaha (Lightning Flashes) Bwhahahahaha (Fades to black)
Good eye! Yes, these are a little thicker than normal, about 1/32" on the wood and the same on the liner. I have had to add this to Amboyna because of its propensity to cracking and splitting. It adds a little bulk to the razor itself, but because of its light density there seems to be no added weight and the balance remains ok.
Seems like another one of us took it so far that our tattoo artist must be sent out to put the secret SHITCA mark on his buttocks.
Torben, Ralfy is on the way! Don't forget to cleanly shave the area : :
