Just a couple of slimlines, but I thought the amboyna burl grain was really cool. Thanks for looking.

Very impressive! I’d never use them in fear that I’d break them!

Nice pens. My desk pen is made of this wood. It turns very well as compaired to other imported woods. I really like them like these when there is some sap white wood on them. thanks for sharing.

I sanded up through all grades of micro mesh on the bare wood, did 3 thin coats of ca, and buffed between those with micro mesh, then used hut plastic polish and a cotton rag to polish while on the lathe

I’m just about to start turning pens, I like the slimline kits and very nice grain.

The black titanium kits from penn state are nice, I would also use a total of 6 coats of ca if i had the chance to do these pens again, they are showing a little wear but still nice…....thank you
