A man needs only two tools: WD40 and duct tape. If it does not move and should, use the WD40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Very nice dollis.

How do you do the finish? Some of the modeling on a few of them are just awesome!

Nice job on all the pens and bottle stoppers. What finish process do you use.

Yes it is Koa

On the plastic & acrylic I sand to 600 then use the wet sanding pads from Penn State. On the Woods I use 3 coats of the brown Hutt wax, 3 coats of the Hutt white wax, Followed buy Mylands friction polish 3-4 coats. The finishing seems to be harder to do than turning the pens.

Very nice work dollis. Looks like you've been busy. Time to take a break and open up a bottle of wine that you can use one of your new stoppers in!
