This finish is designed specifically for applying to wood pens or other wood turnings as they are spinning on the lathe. Use the satin gloss block for an easy-to-apply finish to your pens or pencils. For a gloss finish, first use the satin gloss block followed by the high gloss block.
I've only used this a couple of times. I am hoping it meets the advertising; that it hold up better than shellac on top of a wax base.

In February of this year, I became the proud owner of a brand new wood lathe. I thought that a good way to learn how to use it would be to make some pens. The combination of these two HUT finishing bars has made lustrous finishes so simple that I can concentrate on learning some turning skills.
"Have been a return customer for a number of years, and a recent experience has really cemented that bond for me. After using my Rockler lighted magnifying lens for a few months, one of the wires from the battery pack came loose. When I contacted Customer Service to inquire about sending the unit back, they instead sent me a brand new one - no questions asked, no return expected, no charge whatsoever. This simple step - coupled with top quality, innovative products - ensured my repeat business more than any other advertising technique or gimmick could ever do.
Keep up the good work, Rockler!" -
