Just finished two pens. These represent # 6 and # 7 of the first batch I created with my new lathe. The different species finish amazing and the grain really pops once the finish is applied. Can you guess the species? I have been making the barrels more robust to fit better in larger hands. Once you get the hang of this it only takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.

I would venture to say ball point. They don’t look like any fountain pens I’ve ever seen and definitely not quill pens.

I hope that helps.

Padauk and mahogany of some sort. Padauk being on the one on the bottom in my opinion.

Have your say...
