I made 4 pens and one bottle stopper today. The Bolt Action pens are purple heart and the slimlines are oak and jarrah. I think the bug has got me bad.

Very nice. I’ve never tried Jarrah. It’s a nice looking wood.

I also tried a new technique (for me) using picture hanging wire to burn lines in the wood. Pretty nifty I think
