I'm almost ready for final assembly and finishing of a cabinet about
It's made mostly of maple and has four purpleheart legs roughly 1.5"
I have gotten more skin damage from purpleheart splinters than
anything I've worked with before. Just this afternoon I ripped a
choice piece of thick skin off my left index finger when I caught it
on a crack that ended in a sharp splintery point.
I need to be sure the person who receives this, doesn't get splinters
in her dainty white hands.
Will finish sanding and some rubbing, plus applied finish (clear
shellac) be enough to avoid splinters on the long exposed edges?
Any better suggestions? Afraid bevelling is asking for trouble with
this material. Hate to round off the edges, but if that's the only
sure way, I'll do it
