My son came home last night and was all fired up for deer season. Made me start thinking about gifts for the holidays. Along with many I enjoy making a pen now and then. I probably don’t put as much effort in making a pen as I should or as many of you do. I sand down to 400 grit, then use EEE Ultra Shine to further smooth the wood. Then apply 4-5 coats BLO and CA. Wax and buff. I try to sell a few but really don’t have alot of luck but they are fun to stick in your pocket and just give away when the right situation comes along. For $3.00 or so I get alot of enjoyment.
