Really Gorgeous, Darryl!

Reminds me of a wicker basket.

these are so cool…

you asked me what I use for finishing my stoppers and pens…I get it at PSI…

First I used the ””EEE Ultra-Shine Cream Wax””:http://www.pennstateind.com/store/PKSWEEE.html?mybuyscid=3787745211&utmsource=mybuys&utmmedium=webrecs&utmcampaign=mybuyswebrecs…after sanding…

Then I use 1-2 coats of the ””Shell Wax Liquid Friction Polish””:http://www.pennstateind.com/store/PKSWAXL1.html?mybuyscid=3787745211&utmsource=mybuys&utmmedium=webrecs&utmcampaign=mybuyswebrecs…

The stuff is expensive…but I have had both for a year…with some left…
