I made 5 pens today. The center one is sarvis wood and the others are maple. The center one is a rollerball, the 2 next to it are cigar pens and the 2 outer ones are slimline. All wood are leftover bowl blanks pieces. I like to save the scraps and make pens from them. Last week I cut the pen blanks, drilled the holes and glued the tubes in them. I turned and finished them today.
