- Hi Pappa Frank,I saw your new Euro Nickel pens and they are very nice! I really love that Lemon wood, and I like the palm, and, well I liked them all very much! I've been working on some Euro Nickel pens too and I hope mine will look as nice as yours do. I'll share some pictures soon.I have a question for you. On open-grained woods like your Palm pen, do you fill or seal the grain? And if you do, what do you use?I've been using either Moser's transparent grain filler, or CA glue, but am wondering if there is some good alternative? The Moser's grain filler is great, but it fills the sand paper badly making it difficult to sand. The Ca glue is the best, but is expensive and burns my eyes. Any other suggestions?And Pappa Frank, don't you listen to that stuff Angelo is saying about you finally making some decent pens. Ha! We all know how your son loves to tease, yes? I saw some of your Dymondwood pens months ago and they were beautiful pens too. Thank you for sharing the pictures.PatPens By Patricia

Angelo said the palm was stabilized, hence no grainfilling would be
necessary on this particular one.
Yes, that is correct. However, some filling is needed as it is still not 100%
solid Sorry, seems I've missed a post or two....my own posts are taking a day
or two to show up
