Couple of Pens *PIC*

>I thought I would post a couple of pens I just finished turning. I'm heading back home to see family and thought I would bring everyone a pen. The slim pens are for the ladies and the thicker ones are for the men.

I was told a finishing secret today by a Lee Valley employee. Worked great! To apply CA glue use Polystyrene (white) packaging sheet material or the laminate flooring underlayment from IKEA because it doesn't have any fibers whatsoever and it also doesn't contain any moisture and CA doesn't bond to it. So no hairs, no white gunk or stuck on applicators. Worked beautifully and took about 30 seconds to apply.

Woods are from left to right.

Feedback is appreciated.

Thanks for looking
