Fantastic work on the finish, and profile. But the finish really sets this off!

Love that burl, profile looks great. Can’t beat that CA finish can ya? I learned about that finish at my local wood turning club meeting early this month and they mentioned that you use a couple drops of boiled linseed oil on the pen and then put a coat of CA on, then repeat till you have however many coats you want. Makes it easier than just straight CA and I will never finish a pen with anything else. Grat job!!

Hi Adam Hood. I use Danish oil when I applie de Ca mid glue. I begin by applying CA thin glue to saturate the wood, the use Danish oil and CA mid glue for next layers. I finish polishing with car product’s finishing: compund and wax for fiberglass cars. It makes a very nice and durable finish!

Well what you did really makes the grain and burl stand out almost 3D-ish. Gorgeous.
