If I use and alternative finish to CA, I use Deft brush on lacquer....never had a pen returned for a poor finish. YOu do need a clean brush and environment, though. The trick to doing it is: apply a coat and wipe right back it off with a paper towel while it is still wet, let it sit 20 minutes, hit it with 0000 steel wool, wipe, then apply 2 more coats waiting 30 minutes between them, let dry over night.

I have used dipping lacquer on bog oak and find it does very well and leaves the grain texture of the oak noticeable to the touch.

Where did you get your bog oak? Maybe it wasn't fully dry.
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they ****ed me off.

I have used Waterlox with a great deal of success. Below is a razor handle in IBO I did a while ago and the finish turned out great.

That is really beautiful. Well done. I love the gloss and deep shine. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Let the wood chips fly.
Due to the world economic situation the light has been switched off at the end of the tunnel.:eek:
