Finished this today, my very first Amboyna/Jr. Gent pen.

Sanded to 1800, then 1 coat of thin CA and 8 coats of Medium CA. Sanded again to 1800 half way through the coats and again at the end. Buffed with brown stuff and White Diamond.

Thanks for looking, and C & C welcome as usual.

Bob.

Another winner winner there Bob…more beautiful wood.
I don’t think it is your fault the zoom picture thing Bob…I can’t get any pics to zoom on any ones projects except the first pic on a all black screen and it wont go to the next pic.
Thanks for sharing your pens.

Great looking Pen Bob! The colors all go together well. Nice work!

I’m having that same “Zoom” problems.
With my Laptop I can hold my Control (Ctrl) Key down and push on the mouse scroll wheel to zoom on the entire page.
