Beginner CA Glue Problems and Solutions Explained Here - Part I

Thursday, June 27, 2019 12:51:44 AM America/Los_Angeles

Originally, CA glues were meant to be used in small amounts. Cyanoacrylate glues actually and perceivably perform better when less are applied. When less glue is used, the adhesive dries faster, allowing it to reach its full bonding strength sooner.

The Perfect CA Finish on a Maple Bolt Action pen

Friday, January 18, 2019 2:21:33 AM America/Los_Angeles

There is no exact recipe for applying a CA finish. Talk to 20 different turners and you’ll get 20 different answers on how to lay down the perfect CA finish for your pens. The following is how I use CA glue as a finish for my pens. Cyanoacrylate (CA) glue usually comes in a few different forms. I typically use thin CA as a basecoat, especially for wood pens. Thin CA allows the glue to soak into the grain of the wood. After several coats of thin CA glue, I usually step up to medium CA glue to build up the finish. I reserve thick CA glue for filling gaps in wood pens. For this project, I chose to use a bright and figured piece of maple paired with a bolt-action pen kit. The light color of the wood compliments the gunmetal finish of the hardware. This tutorial will explain how I got a smooth and shiny finish on the pen!

CA Glue and Coffee Ground Filler

Thursday, June 21, 2018 3:48:44 AM America/Los_Angeles

Like many woodworkers, my interest in woodworking started in my teen years due to a passionate woodshop teach who inspired me to learn how to use tools and make things with my own two hands. Unfortunately what they don’t teach you in woodshop is perfection is allusive and rarely if ever achieved. I struggled for many years trying to make things perfect from the start of any project until I read some words of wisdom somewhere online, “A good craftsman isn’t someone who that doesn’t make mistakes. A good craftsman is someone who knows how to fix or make the most out of his mistakes.”
