Here are a few more pens that I made up recently. The first is a segmented blank of Walnut,White Oak, Mahoghany, and Maple. The pattern is a slanted brick pattern by Kevin Kronewitter and Joseph Schneider.

The second pen is a diamond and scallop design using Purpleheart, Walnut and Yellowheart. I think if I make this again I will use a Cherry or medium color wood to show the purpleheart better.

The last pen blank is a Black Ash Burl and has some beautiful grain pattern to it.

Thanks for looking.

All three are gorgeous, but my favorite is the Black Ash Burl.
