PSI gun metal pen & pencil kits with Maple Burl blanks. Finished with Hut PPP satin & gloss bars. I had a small “snafu” as seen in pic 2. When I made the cut for the blank, as you can see, it was broke in half. I used gel super glue to put it back together, and it turned fine and because of the burl, the crack is virtually undetected. Thnx for the looks and any comments…....good/bad/ugly.. :)

Oh now that’s a fancy carrying bag you got there Roger, did you stitch that up by hand yourself? :)

Kidding aside those are a very nice set of writing utensils really like the wood Roger.
