Been practicing my Pen turning and playing around with different finishes,
Pic 1 A bunch that turned out okay
Pic 2 European style in Olivewood finished with Carnauba Wax
Pic 3 Slimline Pen and Pencil set in Teak finished with CA
Pic 4 Slimline Walnut finished with OSMOS
Pic 5 Slimline Oak finished with OSMOS and Maple finished with CA
Looks like some folks going to get Pens as Stocking stuffers!

Nice pens. I only use CA glue but am looking for something a bit quicker to apply.

The Carnauba hard wax is the quickest, I do a clean with some shellac then as many coats of wax as required to get a nice shine, usually 3 or 4 after sanding to 400 grit. No dry/set time, a rag for buffing and done!
