I ordered 5 of these kits from Woodcraft, along with the bushings and the 25/64 bit that I needed to drill the blanks. I drilled out the first one and the tip of the bit broke off! I’m not really impressed with the quality of this kit – the pen looks good, but compared to the others I’ve made – I’m just not feeling it. They are going to send me a replacement bit and I will try the other 4 kits. My Son grabbed it tonight, thinking that he would sell it rather quickly in the Gun Dept. of his Pawn Shop. We’ll see :-)
The wood on this pen is a piece of Bocote that I had lying around. I had ordered some Pens Plus from the Doctors Woodshop . This stuff is AMAZING. I sanded to 1000 grit and then applied 3 coats of the Pens Plus. I am really impressed with the gloss and finish that I was able to achieve. I highly recommend this stuff.
