My first pen! 24k gold plated bolt action pen with Texas Mesquite burl. I donated this one to my children’s school for a silent auction fundraiser.

Very nice; I made a couple of these also for Christmas presents, but yours looks a lot more shiny than mine – what did you use for the finish?

I used 12 layers of CA and polished to a high glossy shine.

Have your say...
