Welcome from Edmonton, Alberta. I think you will find that CA is used by most of the people on this site. If you search for CA or pen finishing you will find how others apply their finishes but remember that each suggestion is the one that works for the specific poster and using one or a combination of suggested application methods will likely be what you end up with. There are very good tutorials on turning pens which I would suggest that you have a look at. I happened to look at one a few days ago and although I've been turning for a few years I tried what the tutorial indicated and am very much more pleased with the result in comparison to what I was doing.

Welcome from currently chilly sunny California. CA finish is what I have found works likes most folks. Sometimes tedious, but very smooth, shiny and hard as can be. Good light!
