    Waste Not Want Not Finished

    After turning and finishing on of Branden's (PenI8the) Wenge/Styrene segmented blanks I saved the shavings and cast in PR to make a couple more pens.

    The Longwood Click is finished with 6 coats of Satin MINWAX Oil Modified Water Based Polyurethane using my "Dipping Method".






    Cast shavings on a Sierra Chrome.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with extra fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss
