Super glue (CA) is a good finish option, too, because it gets shiny and is very durable. It takes a while to figure out the technique though.

Mark James used poly on a pen he made for me in a PITH one time, which I liked because it shows more of the texture of the wood. I still need to try it out for myself though...

That's cool! Yea I may try a ca finish one day but I really do prefer the nice wood finish. I use wipeon poly alot and may try it on a pen one day. The only downfall to poly is the cure times.
