Does anyone have a suggestion for a similar finish to superglue
on wood? I like the 'wet look' it gives, and the smooth finish. Only
asking in case there is a better / cheaper method I'm not aware of.
Thanks in advance,

Well no firm plans at the minute, but one day I hope to finish a
bog seat. Who wouldn't?!
I was arsing around with an old floorboard the other day, and I ended up
spilling some CA on to it. I had previously heard of people using CA as
a finish, but I had not paid much attention. However, the finish that
resulted on this floorboard was wonderful, so I had a litle experiment - I
sanded a patch down and gave it two coats of CA (with a light sanding
inbetween). The wood took on a lovely wet-look with a nice matt or silk
finish, depending on how I sanded it up. It seemed to be fairy durable,
too, as wacking it with a hammer didn't do too much other than a few
The reason I ask about alternatives is that the glue isn't the cheapest way
of finishing a door, for example, but it seems like it would be quite
suitable - good looking and (possibly?) durable (the piece of floorboard is
now outside to see what the weatehr does to it) so if this finish was
already well-known and there were any alternatives, I was curious.
I DO actually have two external doors to refinish (when it warms up), so
asking now seemed like a good idea in preparation.
Thanks for your reply.
Keep us posted on this.
I had a tube of CA in my tool box I took to a IEEE show for Testers.
We used some and the tools - packed up and the box shipped back with
the equipment. In a week I got my box of hand tools and the whole box
had a thin layer of CA over everything. There was oil on the tools and
flux in a pot - so the contaminants were CA and oil mist when the truck
got hot on the trip. It took a month or so and the CA powered off
everything - the whole box was white with dust. I think the CA
was taken apart by the oil. It might have been while it was drying or
afterwards. I don't know. Just that CA doesn't last on the outside of
