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.

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)
