Ok so after the first 2 pens I did as tests to just sort of get a feel I put a more serious effort into making this paduak pen. Looks like it turned out good to me! Please give me your feed back as I’m still a beginner! Finish is 3 coats of varathane sanded inbetween each coat.

It looks good. You should try using CA glue as a finish too. I have a bunch of wood blanks waiting for a little warmer weather to get at them.

Thanks everyone. Yes CA glue is probably the way to go and I plan to pick some up at the wood working show near my place this weekend. Also need more pen kits (got lots of blanks but went a little skimpy on the kits haha!) My question is will the finish I’‘ve used last? or wear off quickly? Thanks again for the input

Have your say...
