Rocket Pen made from Curly Maple and African Mahogany and a slimline pen kit.

Someone asked if I could make them a rocket pen to give as a Christmas gift to their friend who worked in the aerospace industry. I had never made one before and looked online for ideas and found fellow Lumberjock Bj383ss' wooden rockets inspiring.

This is a beautiful and very creative pen and a real eye catcher.
