CA is a lousy finish…...I started making CA finish pens 10 years ago….most of the oldest ones look terrible today, some are all cracked, but all have some cracking. They are micro cracks but they are there! I have used DNA to dry the oils out of the blanks and not used both….didn’t seem to matter. I bought and made a second slow speed turning mech and am now spraying on poly from a rattle can….takes a lot longer but makes a much better product.

I have a friend doing shellawax products with some decent success too.
