This is a woodcraft fountain pen kit I helped my step son make. He picked out the wood, but forgot what it was. This is a great pen kit, goes together well, nice tight joints. I’m to heavy handed to use a fountain pen. The inlay band is Red Oak, the wood for the pen is mostly black, with some very dark brown. It seemed to be oily, epoxy wouldn’t hold things together very well. We started off trying to put in a celtic knot, but the joints wouldn’t hold with epoxy. We had to use the band of oak to make the cap long enough. It’s odd, tight bond 3 held up better than epoxy.
Thanks for looking,
