I have been working on pens for a small craft show the last few days and really liked the way this one came out. Asian Ebony. Elegant Beauty kit. CA finished. The second blank will be the mirror image…maybe someone will want a set.

Alot of pen turners use micromesh to get a shine. Another turner showed me his pens that were finished w/ CA and then just buffed with EEE and White Diamond. You cannot tell the difference. I was converted!

Nice work! I do agree about the EEE and White Diamond. I’m starting to see the light as well. I work more with resins, acrylics, and tru-stones when it comes to pens and the white diamond buff is still better than wet sanding with micro mesh. Great Pens!!

I don’t usually comment on pens, but these are truly stunning. Thanks for sharing.
