I made this pen as a Christmas gift. The wood is East Indian Rosewood, with 4 coats of woodturners wax. The pen kit is the Gentleman’s pen kit from Please forgive the lousy pictures, I need to get a better camera.

a gentlemen’s pen – very handsome indeed. It is about the size of a cigar pen (which I thought I’d like, but find a hair to big), or a bit smaller in diameter?

This is a big pen, however, it has a tapered neck were you hold it making it a comfortable pen to use.

NIce job!! That is a project I have wanted to do since I got a lathe and Just never got the set-up. I need to because this time of year gifts like that would be great to hand out. Good work.

This came up on the home page again… still really struck by the appearance and proportions of this pen. Looks like I’m going to have to make some!
