I just finished my last 5 kits. No more kits for me, kitless fountain pens all the way! In order of appearance. Spalted maple and bog oak, Rhino Earth's Core, Exotic Blanks Poly, Some blue acrylic from China, 6000 year old Irish Bog Oak. I usually use a CA finish on my wood pens, but couldn't bring myself to do that to the bog oak piece. I tried the Myland's sandind sealer followed by Myland's friction polish and then Rennaisance wax and really like the way it came out.
