Grab an assortment of sandpapers of various grits. I ended up with 220 through 2000 grit. Take your time on the lower grits and have fun with this process, stopping as needed to check your progress. You'll start to see a natural shine come out as you work toward the higher grits.

Depending on your finish, you may be even able to apply that at this stage as well. I've never applied a CA glue finish, but I suspect you could even apply that with this method.
