I know, there are too many pen posts on here already…
But these are some of my first ones, made as a bunch of Christmas gifts for last Christmas. I did somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 pens and pencils. Lots of different woods, burls, tried some Celtic Knots, one with crazy scallops – took forever to cut and glue up that blank, but my wife sure loves it.
Not all of the ones I did are in the photos because they were gift-wrapped too soon and I for got to take photos. gave matching pen/pencil sets to everyone in my office and they liked them a lot. Finish is CA glue – you can really get that shiny going through some really high grits. I had a 3M headlight restoration kit with leftover pads and polishing compound and it worked great for these.
Thanks for looking!
