What material did you use for the barrels on the pen in the 5th picture ... the pen with the satin nickel nib, centerband and clip ?

Looks beautiful !!!!

G'day and welcome from South Australia.

Friction Polish is all you need for acrylics and woods where a natural finish is desired, the CA finish has many variations and I would suggest you view some Youtube videos of the various applications processes.

Please avoid the CA fumes, a simple fan pushing the fumes away from your face is a good start but if you are the to develop and allergies, other preventive methods may be required.

Best of luck.

Cheers
George

I think you are referring to this one? This one is black palm.. this wood is a royal pain to work with.. I cracked one blank drilling it it and one using the barrel trimmer..
