Nice set of pens

I, too, will only use enduro from now on. Takes a bit longer than CA, but it's so much easier to get a nice finish. Plus, it isn't so plasic looking as CA tends to look. JMHO

I see you are finishing most of your pens with Enduro now, i am the same as you, it is good stuff[:D]

Hi Andrew, after spending ages getting my CA finishing technique down to a fine art, I am getting annoyed with people not believing it is wood under the finish "it doesn`t feel like wood". So Enduro it is from now on![;)]

Fine work indeed Mark. I also like the coffee tree burl best! That Enduro finish is very good stuff judging by the finish you are getting.

(PS - Top of the World - Carpenters! Classic!![}:)])

John - here is a link to where I get mine from, it tells you what Enduro is and how to apply it.

There is also a group buy running in this forum you may want to get involved in.

I cannot for the life of me rmember where I bought the Coffee Tree Burl, I have only the one blank that I used for the two Sierras, I am thinking it was a freebie with an order.[:)]
