Hi!!

These are the first pens I turned.

The woods are from left to right: jacarandá-marrom (brown rosewood), jacarandá-caviúna (Brazilian rosewood), pau-sangue (a species of bloodwood), cedro-rosa (Spanish cedar), nó de sequoia (redwood burl), and sucupira.

Finishing was cianoacrylate (except for the redwood pen) and carnaúba wax.

Cheers!

Menini,

NICE JOB on the pens! The pau-sangue one is REALLY skinny – pushing the limits a LOT! I love it.

Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.

Nice work. There is a group of pen makers over at www.penturners.org. You should join and post them over there too. Lots of good info on pen making.

Thank you. It is very skinny, indeed. I think is a way to let the slimline a little different of the pattern.

Thank you. Yes, I know the group. It is a very good source regarding penturning!
