Blue, natural, and black canvas and linen layered together with phenolic resin combine to make one incredible rag Micarta!  We call this color fusion Bellingham Bay after the gorgeous waters of the Salish Sea off of Washington state.

This "burl" composite is a pre-impregnated recipe.  This means that we are only able to get the material in five color combinations (unlike the custom pressings we have made), but it is also considerably more economically priced.  

This material is made a bit differently than most modern decorative cloth composites.  Instead of epoxy resin, this material was specifically pressed with phenolic resin.  This means the rag/burl will continue to patina/age as time goes by, just like the rag recipes from days past!

Because it's made with a phenolic resin, it is also more resistant to chemicals, and also tends to warp less when grinding.  Very fun material!

The first photo shows the scales unsanded, how they will ship.  The second photo shows the material sanded to 400 grit, and the third photo shows the material sanded to 2000 grit.

Scales are sold in multiple sizes, and are sold in sets of two.

Proudly made in the U.S.A.
