Made this slimline pencil out of zebrawood and the holder, I am not sure on the wood. I am addicted to pen turning.

Nice Pencil, rick. The candle holder might be pecan. It has the color and grain pattern!

Nice job Rick. I like your choice of wood.

It looks like they’ll work to me, Rick. You did a nice job on them.
