Wow, that’s pretty cool. I never figured using CA (super-glue) for a wood finish, but I can see how well that can work for turned pens. I’m also impressed that you managed to keep it off your fingers. Whenever I use CA (or Gorilla Glue for that matter), it always ends up getting all over the place and I have to live with lizard skin on my fingers for a few days.
Looks like you have a couple of cameras now, so your transitions between scenes are really seemless. Lighting is much better now too. Hey, when are you going to start the Stu’s Shed Channel so I can TiVo it? Nice work!
I really can’t think of how you would – to use it in an aerosol would be a recipe for disaster – the action would cause the CA to begin to set, and you’d end up with a very lumpy finish (or a new way of making nano-marbles!) (It’s all the rage in ant children playgrounds)

Hey thanks for showing me a little trick that I haven’t seen anywhere else-scoring the CA before removing the bushings. This is a useful trick to know before I turn my first pen. Great video! Daniel-North Carolina-USA
