Great job—especially the Eucalyptus Burl, which my wife just appropriated. Hope you’re in the mood to make more in the near future as we’re figuring out a couple of birthday presents. Thanks for a really neat pen!

These are really gorgeous, Roger!
I made a couple of these for some Civil War historians. Wanted to use wood from the Gettysburg battlefield. Those park rangers are really nasty when you try to swipe a branch!

Excellent pend Roger…You also did a fine job on your marketing materials. I bit of history about the pend, materials used and yourself goes a long way in marketing. Glad to see you are selling them.

You do a really nice job of these. Your presentation makes it extremely impressive. I don’t have a lathe yet, so all this stuff is still on the bucket list.

These look awesome! How did you get them so shiny, CA glue? I’ve got to try finishing with CA instead of HUT

Thnx everyone. lumberjoe: believe it or not, these are finished with Hut bars. 2 coats of satin, and 2 coats of gloss. I know a lot o folks on here use CA glue. I haven’t used it enough to be good with it. (in my eyes)
