Interesting kit - very, very similar to the Canadiana series, eh?

There aren't many people that can compete with Mark Ligget for a great finish, but you are right there next to him. The set you made for me still shines like crazy I'm pretty sure it's the same set that you use for your avatar?

The thing that makes you different from him, is that he goes to a much higher
grit then only puts a couple of coats on. Just proves there are many ways to get the same fantastic result.

The kit is the standard JR Emperor kit which can be found at Craft Supplies.

The kits that were made for me were the Australiana Elegant Beauties and Australiana Streamline.

That is a great Pen, I am glad to see some of your work. And I still blame you for getting me in to pen turning since I ordered my very first pen kits and tools from you. LOL (got to blame some one right).

That is a beautiful looking pen. The Huon pine looks very nice on the kit.
