I have been busy making a lot of other pens over the last couple weeks and I feel very satisfied with how most of them have turned out. This Honduran rosewood is the prettiest wood I have used so far. The finish is gold titanium.
The other 2 pens are… A chrome Baron fountain pen and Baroness (Sedona) rollerball. The fountain pen is another “burl & swirl” made from buckeye burl cast in blue & green acrylic. The rollerball is a beautiful blue acrylic that I think goes along perfectly with the chrome hardware. I like this one a lot and am very tempted to use it as my own personal pen.
The two wooden pens are finished with about 10 coats of CA glue, sanded to 12000 grit, polished with 3 coats of plastic polish and then buffed with an ultra fine plastic buffing compound. The acrylic is done without a CA finish.
The “burl & swirl” also needs to be sanded to at least 4000 grit before applying the CA due to the fact that sanding scratches are much more visible in the acrylic.
