Nice looking pen. :thumbsup:

I liked seeing the original blank and the pen components laid out. I have not turned a pen so I did not know how many parts can be involved.

yes 14 coats medium
It shines up nicely :yes:

One thing I found with CA finishes, if I don't give them a final treatment with Huts Ultragloss plastic polish (or similar), there are very fine scratches left by even the finest of the Micromesh pads.

The Ultragloss seems to take care of them. I generally give it 10 to 15 seconds on the lathe then rub lengthwise over the whole barrel so any remaining scratches are axial (as opposed to running around the barrel).
