After a long week I decided to take advantage of a early day and make a pen. It is finished with 5 coats of med. CA glue and polished to 12K grit. I thought that it turned out pretty decent. It sure does write good. I hope that you enjoy. Russell

very nice, why the CA glue? did it get cracks? Puzzled, or do you use that as a finish?

hey imallchalkedup the ca glue is the finish. It is very hard and durable, when sanded to 12k grit it has a nice shine.
