Another lathe project. I love this thing!

Its a fountain pen for my oldest son made of walnut. I had some help from him turning the pen, he is in the picture. It has a CA (superglue) finish and wax.

Nice pen – those don’t look like safety glasses to me…......Plus a face shield is wiser.

Thanks to everyone! I am surprised to get so many comments on a pen.

I’m not sure what the style of pen it is. It just said fountain pen on the description.
