How to Make Micarta!




This tutorial shows you how to make a material known as micarta. Micarta is actually a trademarked name for a specific type of fabric composite material using a certain process. What I am showing you here is a similar process using different materials to achieve a similar material. Our purpose for this material is to make custom rings, but there is really no limit to what this material can be made in to. Many people use it to make knife or gun handles or "scales" as some would call them.

Hope you enjoy the video and learn something in the process!
