3 bullet pens I made over the weekend! The bloodwood one was the first, then the zebra wood (which I think looks kinda like deer fur at an angle…) and Purple heart! The purple heart was trickey though, the first time, I screwed it up, and had to start over. But now it’s pretty! On the bloodwood I used the super glue finish, but the other two are yellow car wax.

I get my bullet pens from Woodturningz or PSI.
A lot different than the one’s you’ve posted.
Where do you get yours?

You might call them big shot pens.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!
I got the kits from penstate. Turning i wasn’t really all that difficult, it’s only as hard as you wanna make it. I plan to sell them at $25 each.
