Most of my pens I sand and then apply a coat of either Bush oil or Danish oil. Then I apply a few coats of Mylands. I have read all of the CA methods you kind folks have shared. My question is, I assume there will be no problem with my use of bush oil undeneath a few coats of CA? Im also assuming that I would need an even coat as so not to sand through the 1st coat of CA and take off any of the oil and make the finish look uneven. Then after you all use the CA your final step is Boiled Linseed oil?

I usualy use only CA. Somehow I like the look of finished pen more, than when combinating with BLO. But if you check on youtube this link it shows quite easy way to apply CA and BLO.
"Basic Wood Pen Turning-The Slimline Part 8"

He basicly use just a drop of BLO before every CA layer.
I remember quite a lot of good responses from the users on this forum.

There is no correct answer to your questions. Some people can get a finish that is acceptable to them with oil on the wood under the CA glue, while others cannot. The only way you will know which you are is to try it both ways.
