Beautiful pens! I'm going to use the Red Flame Boxelder as well; just bought the parts to make my first pen. Any advice for this newbie?

ditto!

Can you point me towards a step-by-step guide for the BLO/CA finish?

I've seen numerous posts saying that's a good way to finish pens, but so far haven't found actual instructions on how to do it.

Thanks!!!
