The pens look nice. What are you using for finish?

Finish??? Most of these pens are finished with combination of BLO and CA glue.

Nice job on the pens Rick. In my early days in the pen business I turned out hundreds of pens – I used to order everything from Berea Hardwoods. Berea is (or was at the time) the Company that actually manufactured and imported all of the pens sold here in the U.S. They supply the dealers, such as Hut, Penn State Ind., etc. Give them a try – you’ll probably save a little money and pick up some good advice.
