Slim line style set.
These are made from mozambique wood.
Some running trim scraps I received from a job my company had in Oklahoma.
This wood turns very nicely and takes a great sheen. Make sure you wear a dust mask!
I liked the colors but it needed something. I put it aside prior to finishing for a few days until I came up with what was missing. It needed to pop and white acrylic paint is what it got. Filled in the grain with the paint and bam. This set was finished with friction polish.
One of my favorite sets yet. I liked it so much I made a pen the same way but with black paint in the grain. Sold the pen before I go any pictures of it.
Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the kind words. The wood is pretty easy to work with and takes a nice shine.
