I thought I’d never turn a pen because everyone else does and I can supply them the wood! Well, the high school shop instructor bought the pen making stuff for the students so I turned one between classed this morning. I made a mechanical pencil rather than a pen. It is made from ambrosia maple that was a lone board laying on the floor. I cut the best grain section out for the blank and the beetle and I both signed this one. There are 2 tiny beetle holes in it.
It is finished with EEE and Shellawax.
