These are the first Stylus pens I have made. They will be going to my wife and each of my parents, since they are the iPad users in the family.

Each of these are Gold Sierra/Stylus pens.

First: Mesquite, with a little hint of sap wood.

Second: Wisteria, from my parents back yard. I will let my Mom and Dad argue over who gets this pen.

Third: Drift Wood, species unknown. Filled the crack with micro glitter and CA. The wood has a lot of color, from ash gray to bright yellow-orange. That is the remaining piece of original drift wood laying in front of the pen. I received this piece of drift wood from an IAP member in trade a couple years ago.

All have a 6-8 coats of CA, polished to 12000 micromesh and buffed to a nice gloss.

well i just came here from the wisteria post, and i like it…ive got some on the back corner of the shop that has some awesome twist to it…going to see if i can make a hiking staff of it, if not i will find a way to use it, and i can get a lot more, ive got lots of it around here…but you know that…hey i was going to tell you i was in the area of the hardwoods store and i stopped in, it was quite enjoyable to look at all of the great wood they have, they had some good prices on some of there maples and the main reason i went in was to scope out the birch…so when my pocket book gets some extra fatness to it, i shall buy some birch and some maple…hope your doing good these days…bob
