Light wood and pen bushing smear

Marianne
>I've noticed [to my irritation] that pens I've made out of a lighter wood color that pen bushing debris makes a dirty band on the pen edges near the bushings. How can you prevent this? I've tried to be very careful not to sand over the bushings and also not to *turn* the bushings! It seems to occur when I start applying the friction polish. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Marianne
