Leather Fishers Of Men Pen

After seeing a beautiful example of using leather for a pen blank over on IAP, I decided to give it a go.

It turned nice enough, and sanded well, at least as long as I kept the leather saturated with thin CA. I thought I'd give it a thin CA finish as well to at least preserve the illusion of the leather's texture.

I think it came out too thin and the ends of the leather blank are visible and lighter. I'll be refinishing it tonight to see if some medium CA will take care of things.
