Wow, Ive been busy finishing my masters and neglecting my wood. Anyway, my wife loves the color purple. I (with shopmania’s help) made this pen out of purpleheart for her. We used a blank and turned it on his lathe. She liked it.

Sweet, remember to keep it in the light for it to stay a bright Purple.

We finished it with shellawax. Pretty nice stuff, it brings out some color and dries in about 20 sec.

It’s a beautiful and well made pen, your wife deserves one. Great fit and finish too.
