Default Finishing a pen with CA glue



I just came across this old YouTube video of mine showing my friend John showing me how he turns a pen and more importantly, teaching me how to finish pens wit CA glue.

Got some a couple of days ago. Need to try it. I get the Titebond brand at Woodcraft but it can be expensive. However, you can get a bunch of pens out of a small bottle. OK, saving this and going back to watch the video.
Edit- Watched the video and impressed with the finish technique. I also sand the ends in a figure 8 plus I use a chamfering tool to clean up the inside of the tube. I found EEE and a piece of pasteboard from a cereal box works good for polishing.

I actually think the price works out in the wash. The 3 little tubes for a buck, versus 2 full ounces for $10, you're probably paying about the same overall. I always have the little tubes on hand for repairs, because if I buy anything bigger it is solid before I finish using it

I keep mine in the fridge door and it seems to keep indefinitely.
