I tend to get very busy both before and after the holidays, so please forgive the few weeks following Christmas that it took me to get these posted.
The Gatsby style stylus pens are labeled in the picture, and were made as gifts for a few coworkers in my building. Our administrators are some tech-savvy people, and seeing as they usually walk around with both an iPad and a legalPad, I thought them appropriate gifts.
The slim style pens were a commission for one very nice lady who got a SUPER deal on them. There are four pen and pencil sets in there, made from Bocote, Bubinga, Cocobolo, and Wenge, and each is finished with CA. I really like working with Bocote, Bubinga, and Cocobolo, but I don’t think I’ll be making any more Wenge pens. At least not with a CA finish. The grain is so spaced out and deep that, while they look great once done, I had to sand away a couple dollars worth of CA from each piece it seemed to fill everything and get a nice, consistent finish.
All in all, I’m really happy with them.
