Very nice. The blank goes well with the components and the fit and finish look great.

Great looking pen. You must be a quick learner for your 24th to turn out so well.
How did you like using the Glu-boost compared to other finishes ( such as CA or a friction polish)? Thanks.

My first two pens were finished with friction polish and looked great but the shine didn't last very long (they were gifts to my granddaughters). I've finished about 6 pens now using Gluboost and the results have been good but I'm too new in the finishing process to say 100% its better. It is easy to use and I like the fact that it doesn't smell. I'm also now testing Zona paper instead of micro mesh with good results. Gluboost is applied with the lathe off and as recommended I'm putting two coats of the blue followed by two coats of the orange. Once dry I wet sand then polish with Plastx (sp).
