Haven't seen much for pens posted...

Haven't seen much for pens posted over here so thought I would post some of my latest.

The first is a figured Maple on a black titanium kit with my first successful CA finish that had a coat of Deft oil applied first to bring out the grain. The second is an acrylic blank on a black & gold titanium Majestic Squire kit.

Nice looking pens! I think I'm partial to the first, something about figured maple when it pops like that.

Heres another I forgot about. Cut from around a knot in one of my Walnut boards. Some Deft oil and lacquer finish.

Anyone have any others to share?

I like them all too. Looks like you did a very nice job on them. I will try to get some pics tonight of some of my latest.

I'm interested in using the deft oil before your ca finish and how that holds up for you. Did you let it dry first before applying ca? How much of a coat did you use? The only reason I ask is I have used boiled linseed oil before my first coat of ca and I have had some issues later with clouding. The blo dries out and leaves a cloudy spot.

When I put it on I generally buff it pretty hard with a paper towel to dry it. Does it help? Never had an issue using lacquer over it that way. See what happens I guess.


How long before you noticed a cloud forming?

That is typically what I have done with the blo and I have been experimenting with less and less for a first coat. On the IAP forum some have suggesting skipping it on the first step and going straight to ca but I just think a small dose of blo or other oil often really makes the grain pop.

I have seen it happen on a couple of my pens within a week or two. I usually try to really buff it in too. It may be the wood and how well it dries on it also. Could also be temp and humidity in my shop which I think can also sometimes play havoc.
