What to do with all the cool scraps laying around the shop?
Make a pen or 2 of course!
1st is an Amboyna burl and the other is some awesome spalted maple.
This was a nice change from box making.

I like them! They look real nice. Wish I had nice scraps like that.
Keep showing them off.

Great looking pens. One scrap is another project, you proved that. The finish is beautiful.

Both pens look elegant. The blanks are gorgeous and perfect with the kits. Great fit and awesome finish.

Have your say...
