3 more pens. Bottom is purpleheart, middle might be maple of some kind and top is black walnut…I think. Wood came all mixed in a bag.

I put a bump on the end of the middle one, thinking that it would improve the handling. I like it, and the person who got it LOVED it, so….that’s settled.

Cheers Tony.

I apply a coat of CA glue and then 3-5 coats of Shellawax. It came with the pen making set that I got off I like how it goes on and it leaves the pen feeling smooth but not slippery.

Have your say...
