These are a few pens I made last week. And for some reason the ebony is my favorite so far.
The top two are venus kits with pyimna and amboynia burl. The bottom is a jr statesman with ebony.
I love the jr statesman with the non postable end cap and the kits from craft supply usa have been great so far, (penn state – not so much).

Those are very nice. I notice you’ve done the same kits in three different profiles, and they each have their own charm. Very nicely done!

Thumbs up! I prefer the center one. What are the woods? One of the Artisan series? How would you rate the quality of the kit?

Just out of curiosity, what do you find lacking in the PSI kits? I’ve found them pretty nice, so far. Except for the Olympian Elite – too much plastic – actually kind of surprised they carry it.

Thanks for making me clarify – the problem was not with the kits but with the shipping.
