I’ve been building a bookcase which will hopefully be ready for a finish next weekend.
Still, I made time for one pen.
Harold (Splinter99 at IAP) sold me some Carribean Rosewood blanks.
They’re really nice: turn swell, polish up real fine, and have lots of chatoyance.
Matched to a Copper Baron Rollerball.
After turning this blank exclusively with a sharp skew, the finish is polish the blank with
MicroMesh from 1500 → 12000, then apply Walnut Oil, then CA, then wet sand with
MM from 2400 → 12000, then buff out with a topcoat of Plastic polish.
With luck, I should have some bookcase pictures during the week.
