I have made several slimline pens but my wife wanted a fatter pen. She also wanted me to make her one out of the cedar that I made her blanket chest out of. All in all, it turned out pretty good. I sealed it with 2 coats of CA glue and then a couple coats of wax.

This is called classic rollerball pen. I was planning to get the cigar pen but they were out so I went with this.

Looks great! When I turn cedar pens I save the shaving, Ihave a waiting list from people who want the shavings. Noe I need to work on a waiting list of people who want to buy the pens.
