Wanted to make me something for the office, and am a big fan of mechanical pencils (over pens). Made this one out of Rosewood using a slim-pencil kit.

finish is 6 coats of HUT crystal coat and 2 coats of bees wax.

Very nice, Sharon. Love the rosewood.
I think I know someone who can make you a nice box for that (see previous project!)

Looks good, and I bet it is easier to write with the enlarged lower portion.

Very nice. Glad to see not everyone uses CA glue for a finish. Lets the natural color come out more. Very impressive.
Thanks for posting it.
