I was at the Canberra ‘Working with Wood’ show last weekend & was talking to one of the wood turners, I think he was with the ACT Woodcraft Guild. He was turning a pen & had a great finish on it. I asked him about the finish & it was simply linseed oil & super glue. That got me interested so I did a little websearching & found this Utube video on how it’s done.
