Friction Polish finish is quick but it is not real long lasting. Keep trying different finishes until you find what works for you. Turncrazy43
Good advice here but I would avoid CA on cocobolo until you've practiced it a bit. Cocobolo has been tricky at times for me, I'm guessing because of the oil in the wood.

I love the color of the oak pen!
