Default Tried Wipeon poly this time.

So my first 2 pens I finished with Bullseye Shellac. It does a decent job and dries fast which is a plus, but still not getting a high sheen with even 6 coats. I know I know ca finish. Not ready for that just yet. But for my third pen I wanted to try the wipeon poly. I did this pen with Zebrawood. I really like how it turned out. I put 4 coats of poly on. I sanded with 1000 grit between coats. Yea it took a while to cure. It's 4 hrs between coats. I turned this sunday evening, put 1 coat on. Then put another coat Monday morning before I went to work. Came home and put 3rd coat on and then 4th before bed. I like the way the finish looks. The pics don't show real well, but it has a nice shine to it. I know for most of you that time is of the essence but for me its just a hobby and I'm not selling any at this time and have no timely demands. Ok, on to my 3rd pen.
