How to make homemade micarta
Here is a short video showing how I make my homemade micarta that I use in knife handles quite often. One tip I didn't mention in the video was to use superglue to finsih the micarta. Sand it to 320 grit, rub it really well with a green scotchbrite pad (hot tip- those with dremels, chuck the scotch brite in the dremel for fast polishing). coat the handle with 5-6 coats of thin superglue, sand it at least to 320, use green then white scotchbrite (in the dremel for speed). that should give you a nice finish. attached are some examples of my homemade micarta. First two pics are a girly knife handled with pink and purple denim micarta. Third and fourth is a kitchen knife I made with the micarta in the vid, and the fifth is some with bright orange cloth. sixth is blue jean and pink jean (this was my sisters christmas present) .


List of ingredients -

- the fiberglass resin
-the hardener that will come with the resin
-and the material used to make it


Note - I want to add that since this video was made, I now use steel plates instead of wood boards. Doesn't break, bend (to an extent) and is much flatter.
