A buddie gave me a piece of Amboyna Burl, apparently the same stuff they make Rolls Royce trim out of. So I thought I should practice on a couple before I ruin the good stuff. Here’s my first pens…ever. The burl is the one on the left. I used CY glue for the finish and wax on top. Only one mistake, but I won’t tell. Thanks.

Great job on your first pens! Those look good. I will be starting my first in a few weeks, and this is encouraging! ;-)

Love the pens – the cross cut grain really comes out. Now you can include a pen with the retirement boxes! Great Job Mike. I won’t show you the fist ones I made!
