I’m struggling with poorly finished ends on my blanks. I’m either being to cautious and not getting enough CA at the ends, or I’m getting too much CA which requires hand sanding the ends prior to assembly. I’ve attached a few pics from this weekend. The pics with the slim-line curly maple shows a small 16th of an inch that doesn’t have any apparent CA glue. So I finished a pen today and over compensated. I’ve done this many times before. As such, after removing from the mandrel, I tried to hand sand the ends using 600 grit sandpaper prior to assembly. in very small circles, I’m hand sanding as slow as possible.. While doing so, I end up with chunks of CA coming off the ends of the blanks. If it matters I finish with 2 coats of thin and 8-10 coats of medium. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
