It depends on the wood coating, if the coating is going to be polished I would polish most of the scales avoiding the wedge end while unpinned then pin the wedge with microfastners and polish the end, then pin the razor (if you weren't going to use microfastners). edit: thinking about it actually I would do this the other way around,fasten the wedge and polish that end then unfasten and polish the main scale)
If the coating isn't going to be polished up you will have to do it before but I would be careful not to bevel the ends of the acrylic (either sandwich it between some sacrificial material and polish it, or make sure the sandpaper is kept flat like wrap it around some wood and keep it perpendicular to the surface your polishing.

When life gets you down don't put on a frown, take out that razor and cut a smile
