Here are my “obligatory” pens. The first 3 are bolt action bullet pens that I just got from PSI. I must say they are a great kit! Easy to make, and they come out really nice. From left to right: Chrome with Cocobolo finished with General Woodturner’s Finish, Gun Metal with Zebrawood, with a CA finish, Gold with Padauk, with Minwax Polycrylic finish. The pen on the right is just a standard slimline pen, Rosewood with a Yellowheart band, and a CA finish. I like my pens a little thicker, but can’t stand the “wasp-waste” when you try to make them thicker. I decided to just turn a larger center band out of wood. Works great! The 2nd photo shows the center band. I think the heftier pens will fetch a better price when I try to sell at the craft show this year.
