Looking for quick satisfying projects I got into turning pens. All my pens are finished with Cyanoacrylate glue (CA glue) and sanded and buffed with micromesh. I never tried another finish because I don’t have the patience to wait for it to cure. I want to be able to use the pen right away. In addition to the over 125 bottle stoppers for my wedding I made pens for each of my groomsmen.

www.craftsupplies.com has a fantastic rub on finish that dries as quickly as CA.
Now I only use CA when I have pores to fill because, IMO, it takes more applications of CA to get the same finish I get from craft supplies
