Some more pens that I have recently done. Walnut, bocote and cherry, cherry, oak. The .50 cal is bocote. I made the .50 cal for a guy at work and wound up selling another one. The woodburning is my new makers mark I am putting on all my pens and other work.

Nice job and I like the “mark” you are using. Good work and “pen”manship!

Looking good there Rustic, I’ve done a few flashlights and some seam rippers for my wife and really enjoyed making them. To have something done from start to finish in less than a day just blew my mind. Keep up the good work.
