I made a new pen with a technique I have not done before. I used 3 layers of colored veneer in the wood blank. The ends of the blank are maple but I can’t remember what the darker wood is. I had it leftover from a different job. The pen is the majestic kit from Penn State Industries and is really easy to work with.

Great job! Very nice pen! :) What did you use to glue the layers of the blank together?

I used CA glue from Rockler. I have used wood glue before, but sometimes the veneer moves while turning.
