Files and sandpapers are used to polish and finish their shape. Their grades are categorized by smoothness of the wood surface and natural color of the wood. Then metal parts supplied by jewelryÂ maker will be fit into the wood(horn, shell) parts. And then polish and re-categories and ready for fitting onto the shaft.Click to see making process.
