They don't make a polishing bit for the CNC? Something that is "soft" where it might take 3 or 4 passes to even notice anything is happening? Maybe a process you would need to learn how to adjust the wood/software to accommodate it.I bought a $30 soda blaster just to try cleaning this thing up. Didn't do shit. Will a nicer one have a chance at cleaning this up? Or different abrasive? Or am I going down the wrong rabbit hole?

That ply looks real good though; don't see any voids for sandblasting/soda to get under and destroy.
Edit: Honestly, that looks pretty good. Some of the best you have posted in this thread. You may be able to light stain, put a coat of polly over it, then a light sand/buff, to make it look smoother, if that's what your going for. Maybe different finished liquids will do different things. Like rubbing a finishing wax directly into the wood... or linseed oil... or lacquer/shellac... (to throw out ideas that might be worth testing/researching, if you haven't already).
